The police in Ondo on Monday paraded a man before newsmen for allegedly raping his two young daughters.
However, the suspect, 48-year-old Femi Onifade, 48, denied the accusation, saying it was an abominable act in Yoruba land but claimed some other persons could have been responsible.
The suspect was said to have sent his wife out of the house on the night he allegedly defiled the girls, aged six and nine years.
According to his wife: “The day we quarreled, my husband did not allow me to sleep in the house and did not let me take any of my daughters. The next day, neighbours called me to say one of my daughters cried all through the night. When I came back I noticed something in one’s private part.”
The suspect, who was arrested by operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, will soon be charged to court.
