magistrate’s court in Nigeria has remanded a 41-year-old father in prison custody after he admitted to having defiled all his four daughters whose ages range between two and seventeen.

Though the man said he committed the act as a result of manipulation, lawyer from Federation of International Women Lawyers (FIDA) who is representing the victims rubbished the claim, saying the suspect was in his right senses when he had forceful sexual intercourse with his four little children.
Fortune Ada Ndah said: “The accused has been forcefully sleeping with his daughters for the past three years.”
She told news men: “Medical diagnosis conducted on the children showed they have been defiled.
“FIDA is not happy about this irresponsible act of a man to his daughters.
“We will ensure the matter is prosecuted to act as a deterrent to others,” she vowed.
