A man identified as Muritala Owolabi Bakare with speech and hearing problems has been arrested by the police in the Igando area of Lagos state for allegedly raping his 13-year-old daughter.
The 43-year-old man, who can read and write, seemed to be remorseful about his actions during interrogation.
“I am sorry about my activities, I rape my daughter, I have learnt some lesson, rape is bad,” he wrote on a piece of paper at Igando police station yesterday,” Mr Bakare said.
Taiwo Kasumu, the Divisional police officer said the “matter has been charged to court for prosecution”.
This is among many of the other unethical reports of rape that has been on the rise in Nigeria of recent.
Recall that Nigerians have been protesting against rape after several incidents that cut across different parts of the country.
A careful look at these cases mentioned above, one would notice that they occurred in places where a lady would consider safe.
However, ‘safe’ wasn’t the case for these ladies as they were raped and murdered in cold blood.
Several groups, celebrities, and indeed the whole Nigerians have been calling on the federal government to do the needful and ensure the safety of Nigerian citizens.
