Man Arrested For Defiling His Own 6-Year-Old Daughter; Says "Its A Family Affair"

37yrs old Mr. Agu Echezona Harrison has been remanded in prison by an Ikeja High Court, Lagos for s*xually assaulting his 6yrs old daughter, by allegedly inserting his fingers into her privates.

Agu was arraigned on a one count charge of s*xual assault.

The prosecuting officer, Adebayo Haroun, told the Court that the accused committed the offence in their home at No. 23 Rotimi Omotosho Street, Isheri Osun, between 2013 and 2015. 

Agu’s wife, Akukwe Priscilla, who reported the case to the police, said that the defendant was fond of touching the little girl’s private part. According to her, she noticed an offensive odour oozing out of her daughter’s private part with frequent whitish discharge. 

When asked, the girl replied that her daddy has been inserting his hand into her bum bum. 

She said: “Nurses confirmed that someone has been touching her. When I confronted him, he denied it and I angrily went to his mother to report the matter.

"My mother-in-law told him to stop me from escalating the issue. After that, in December 2013, he r*ped my younger sister and also tried to deny it, not knowing I had taken my sister for a test at the hospital to check the drop of sperm found inside her.

"Since it was barely 24 hours the r*pe happened, I forced him to go for a test also and he did. The hospital confirmed it was a match with the one on my sister. He immediately started begging and prostrating that he was sorry.

"I had felt he was truly sorry, when in 2014 I started noticing same discharge from my daughter. I had to leave the house with my kids, which he later came fighting for custody, especially for my little girl.”

Meanwhile, Agu verbally attacked some journalists who were trying to get facts of the matter from the court. He said: “I will sue you people if you write anything about me. It is a family affair and, therefore, none of your business.”
