According to a report by Vanguard, Anyanwu confessed that he had started sleeping with his daughter since January this year after he lost his job. He says frustration drove him to commit the act.
He was exposed after an aunt of the girl suspected that she was pregnant. A test was run on her which showed positive. When she was asked who had been sleeping with her, she said her father.
Confessing to the crime, Anyanwu said “I started sleeping with my 15-year-old daughter sometime around January, after I lost my job. I am a transporter but I took to alcohol after I lost my job and could not meet up with my responsibilities as the head of the house”he said
When his act was exposed, Anyanwu beat up his wife and warned her not to mention it to anyone. The girl's mother quickly arranged for an abortion for her. He was arrested last Wednesday June 22nd after the Lagos State Ministry of Youth and Social Development got wind of the matter and alerted the police.
The 15 year old girl is currently in protective custody by the Lagos State government. The case, which is currently being investigated at the Gender Unit of Lagos State Police Command, will be charged to Ikeja Magistrate’s Court today June 28th.
