Unbelievable: A Man Rapes His Daughter To Confirm Her Virginity
Wasiu Orilonise, a 37-year-old guard, publicly admitted that he had raped his 15-year-old daughter for verification of her virginity and protection.
Wasiu, who appeared before the Oyo State Magistrates Court sitting in Ibadan, appealed to the court to forgive him, because he did it to confirm if his daughter was still a virgin or not.
The prosecutor, Mr. Sunday Ogunremi, told the court that the defendant took place in December 2018 in Omo village, Agbofieti, Ibadan, in the judicial district of Ibadan, and raped the victim without her consent.
Ogunremi stated that the offense was contrary to the provisions of Article 34 (1) and (2) of the 2006 Child Rights Act of Nigeria’s Oyo State and punishable by it.
However, the accused’s argument was not retained at the time of the indictment.
When the chief magistrate, Mr. Taiwo Olaniran, sought to know what had caused him to defile his biological daughter, Orilonise said that since he had lost his wife a few years ago, he had taken care of the victim and his siblings.
He told the court that he had committed the act to protect his daughter.
Orilonise stated that the incident occurred while he was trying to determine if the victim had lost her virginity, adding that after discovering that she was still a virgin, he had started to have sex with her regularly before leaving for school and in the evening.
The magistrate reprimanded fathers who liked sexually abusing their daughters and other underage girls, claiming that they allowed the devil to use them to destroy society.
He ordered that the accused be remanded in Agodi Prison pending legal advice from the Attorney General and adjourned the proceedings until 30 July 2019.
