“I have been living in bondage. My father started having sex with me after his two wives died. He would always beat me before having sex with me. I told him to remarry but he refused. Every night he would come and rape me. Any day I refused to have sex with my father, he would beat me and then rape me. He always came when the other children were asleep. It was the fear of my father’s beating that made me not to tell anybody.
But one day, I decided to confess to my neighbour. It was the neighbour who discovered that I was five months pregnant. Immediately the news spread, youths in the community gathered to kill my father, but policemen rescued him.”
Samuel Uba, who claims to be an elder in a Pentecostal church blamed it on the devil while he also appealed to his community for forgivenes said:
“I had two wives. My first wife died in 2011 while the second died in 2012. I have nine children, two girls and seven boys. When my second wife was on admission in the hospital, I used to have sex with her right in the hospital. But when she died I started sleeping with my daughter when the other children were asleep. I began having sex with my daughter because I didn’t want to be sleeping around with other women.”
Meanwhile Pastor Donatus Olisa, General Overseer of Christian Pentecostal Church, where the suspect and his daughter worship said how he learnt about the shocking discovery.
He said: “The father of the girl, Samuel and his daughter attend my church every Sunday.

The following morning I went to the house of Papa Samuel and he confessed that he impregnated the daughter. He acknowledged raping her often.”
