44-year-old Augustine Edafiake allegedly had intercourse with the young girl who lives in his neighbourhood and she is now 3 months pregnant, Tribune reports.
Edafiake, who is a father to two teenage daughters and three other children, is said to have formed the habit of having sex with the girl whenever her stepmother was absent.
He also reportedly tipped her between N1000-N1500 to convince her to keep the affair quiet.
The suspect was however exposed when the girl’s parents suspected that she was with child and took her to a hospital for testing where their suspicions were confirmed.
Edafiake was said to have confessed to the crime after his arrest leading his family members to plead for an out-of-court settlement but the girl’s family is reportedly insisting that he must marry her.
The accused has been granted bail until the full determination of the case against him.
