Father docked for raping 2 daughters, impregnates 1

A man has been arrested in Benue State for allegedly raping and impregnating his daughters.

Why would a father rape his own daughter?

A Markudi Magistrates' Court sitting in Benue State, is to determine what will happen to a 42-year-old man, Thomas Akate, who was dragged before it on charges of raping his biological daughters and impregnating one of them who is just 12-years-old, reports Daily Post.

The prosecutor in the case, Cpl. Omaye Ujata, told the court that accused was reported to the police by one Francis Omanga, who explained that Akate had been having sexual intercourse with his two daughters, 12 and 10 years old, and that one of the girls got impregnated as a result of the constant forceful sexual intercourse.

The court also heard that the father had threatened to kill the girls if they ever exposed what he was doing to them to anyone.

However, the accused pleaded not guilty when the charge was read to him and the Magistrate, David Agada, granted him bail in the sum of N50, 000, while adjourning the case till November 16, for hearing.
