It was gathered that the woman was already in the kitchen when she went back to the room to get some ingredients for the soup she was making when she stumbled on her husband trying to force his manhood into his own daughter.
The woman reported raised the alarm which drew the attention of neighbours who apprehended the man.
It took the intervention of the police from the Katako Police Station to prevent the angry mob from lynching the randy father to death as he was whisked away by the operatives while the little victim was rushed to a hospital where she is being taken care of.
A non-governmental organisation called Voice of the Girl Child, has reportedly taken up the case with a view to making sure the suspect does not escape justice.
