A vigilante group in Sapele, Delta State, has arrested a middle-aged man named David Akpokpokpo for allegedly raping and impregnating his teenage daughter in the Amukpe region.
The suspect allegedly had carnal knowledge of his daughter, Mercy Akpokpokpo, resulting in a pregnancy and the birth of a three-month-old infant.
The suspect allegedly threatened to harm his daughter if she confided in anyone. When she couldn’t take it any more, she went to the vigilante group in Amukpe on Friday, August 27.
During interrogation, the guy claimed that he only slept with his daughter once while inebriated, but the victim refuted him, claiming that her father raped her four times.
The man also admitted to being the child’s father.
