An unidentified 65-year-old man narrowly escaped being lynched over the weekend by a group of aggrieved youths in Imo state for impregnating his 17-year-old daughter.
The randy father who resides in Kalabari Beach in the Oguta Local Government Area of the state, said the illicit act started five months ago.
He also claims to have slept with the daughter six times until he was exposed by the pregnancy, adding that it was the devil’s handiwork.
The father of eleven, who claims to be an elder in a Pentecostal church, said he was ready to appease the land while praying for forgiveness from all.
Narrating her ordeal, the 5-month-old pregnant girl who is the man’s first daughter from his second late wife, alleged that her father came to her room one night and forced himself on top of her after removing her clothes and threatened to deal with her if she told anybody about the incident.
According to reports, the man had already made arrangement to sell the unborn baby immediately he/she was born, an intention the girl opposed.
When the news of the man impregnating his daughter got out, the youths in the area stormed his residence, dragged him out and beat him up. It was gathered that he was saved by a lawyer who was passing by who reportedly told the angry youths not to take the laws into their hands.
