Father said Forces made him rape his eldest daughter

49 year old Anthony Ehumadu who raped
his 15 year old daughter at their Oko-Oba
home in Abule-Egba area of Lagos State,
says he committed the abominable act
under the influence of forces beyond him.
Anthony, who aped his daughter who is in
JSS 1 twice, said the first time he committed
the crime, he was drunk but the second
time, he acted by some powers beyond his
While being paraded before newsmen at
the Lagos state police command, Anthony
“I did the abominable act with my eldest
daughter. But I only raped her twice. I
don’t know what came over me. I am
convinced that forces beyond me led me
into committing the crime. Both incidents
happened on Fridays. One Friday night,
one of my friends invited me to a naming
ceremony around Power Line, New Oko-
Oba. I came back home drunk but my wife
was not around. All my children, except
the eldest, were asleep. Immediately, I
rushed in and raped her. I did not meet
her as a virgin. But the second time, my
wife was at home. That Friday night, we
were all watching a movie, when I
suddenly stood up and went straight into
my daughter’s room and started raping
her. It was at that point that my wife
caught me and started shouting. My wife
did not want to go to the police because of
the embarrassment it would bring to the
family and because of her reputation as a
Customs officer.
But her brother did.” – Vanguard quotes
him as saying
