A 19 years old girl has opened up on how his 50 years old father raped her at age 11 and this has culminated to the arrest of her father by the police in Lagos.
National WAVES gathered that the man known as Tyndale Ede allegedly defiled of his 19-year-old daughter since she was 11.
Eden was arrested on May 9 following a complaint by his wife (names withheld) at Ikotun Police Division.
The suspect’s incestuous behaviour was uncovered by his wife at their Kajola Street, Ikotun residence after their daughter literally took her father to the cleaners.
She was said to have probed the teenager further to ascertain why she was rude to her father. To the woman’s consternation, their daughter revealed how her father had been having canal knowledge of her since age 11.
The victim was said to have told her mum he often threatened violence on her each time she resisted him, adding that, he threatened to deal with her if she ever told anyone about it.
