Kaduna Today reports that in a writ of summon submitted before the court, Manta alleged that her husband got the child pregnant when the family was staying at Mararaba, a suburb of Abuja.
She added that the shameful act forced her to abandon their home in Maraba and relocated to Kaduna with their six children.
The sad mother narrated in court:
“When I returned from where I went to see my parents, as a mother and as a woman, I noticed my daughter was not behaving normal and at the same time sick.
But I didn’t suspect anything because my husband constantly gave her some concoctions to drink which he claimed was going to heal the daughter’s ailment.
But when the ailment persisted and I noticed my daughter had missed her period, I questioned and threatened her to tell me if she had any affair with a man and she eventually opened up to me that her father had been making love to her.
So, when I confronted Hafizu with the issue, he cried and confessed about joining a cult group which mounted pressure on him to get his daughter pregnant and also abort it as part of the sacrifice.
I became confused and cried my life out and he promised to disassociate himself from the cult and I went together with him to the hospital where the pregnancy was aborted.
But even after the abortion, he continued sleeping with her. I caught him red-handed having sex with her one day.
I became heartbroken and absconded from his home, that is Maraba, and returned to Kaduna with all my six children."
"It was when I arrived Kaduna that I reported the issue to the District Head of Kabala Doki, Danlami Bawa who invited my husband and I. After all discussions, I sought for a divorce.”
