A man who did the despicable by sleeping with his 15-year old daughter has ridiculously said he felt jealous that another man would enjoy her alone.
The father, Thaddius Audu, who is a farmer and petty trader, had sex with his own biological daughter identified as Justina in Wuyeya, a village under Assakio, Lafia Local Government Area of Nasarawa State.
Justina told reporters thus;
“God has inflicted a permanent wound on me; there is absolutely no point keeping me alive. I think I should just commit suicide and die, rather than continue living to bear this shameful burden. God has not been fair to me and I don’t know my sin or offense. My mother left me when I was barely two years old; and up till now, hasn’t taken as much as a second look back. My late aunt Agnes, who brought me up died, recently and now I’m pregnant for my father. What could be worse than that,” she asked bursting into tears.
“When my aunt died in an accident, my father moved me into his three-bedroom apartment to occupy one of the rooms. He used to check my private part to see if I had started menstruating or having sex with boys. One night, I was sleeping after a hectic day; he came into my room, removed my wrapper and inserted his finger into my private part, asking if I had started menstruating. I woke up suddenly from sleep and asked, “Daddy why are you doing this to me?”
“He asked if I had had sex before and I said no. He then said he would use his penis to test my virginity. Before I could utter any word, he had climbed on top of me. I wanted to scream, but he held my mouth and penetrated into me. I struggled to wriggle free but he over-powered me and forcefully deflowered me. I bled throughout that night, crying uncontrollably till the following day. I was also in pain throughout.
“I felt very bad but he warned me that nobody must hear what he did to me. He also threatened to slaughter me with a knife if he heard it from anybody. That was how he kept sleeping with me at night and eventually got me pregnant.
“How I wish my mother were around; this shameful thing would not have happened to me. It is incredible; my world and life have crumbled. How can I have a child for my father?
“The days that followed my Aunt’s death were both utterly full and completely empty; full of activities, yet empty of life because there was nobody to take care of me and guide me properly.
“Her absence gave my father the opportunity to ruin my life. I feel very ashamed that I’m pregnant without getting married and more ashamed that my own biological father is responsible. Now I think about death frequently because my father decided that I should leave the pregnancy and deliver a male child for him.”
She said her father has even threatened to kill her if she tried aborting the pregnancy. “So I don’t have any choice but to allow it to grow; meanwhile, the pregnancy is just four months.”
According to her father, he had always felt the pain of someone “toasting” his “beautiful daughter” after all the difficulties he went through to raise her, describing the pregnancy as a “secret arrangement”.
The man also gave his own version:
“She looks beautiful and I always feel the pains that one day, someone else will toast her and start enjoying what I suffered all these years to raise. When her mother left me, I took the pains to bring her up because I could not get married and was alone.
“It started as a joke. I don’t know what came over me; she tried to resist me but I was very harsh on her and she allowed me to have my way. Thereafter, we continued unabated. I actually wanted to test her virginity status, to know whether she had started going out with boys but when she told me she missed her period, I decided that she should not abort it.
“She should deliver the baby for me since I don’t have any other child. Thereafter, she can get married to anybody of her choice. This was the secret arrangement we had and I don’t know why she is exposing it now.
“That is the much I can say about it.”
