The Plateau State Police Command, on Friday, paraded a 75-year-old grandfather, Umoru Choji, allegedly caught defiling his granddaughter.
The Commissioner of Police, Mr Nasiru Oki, who paraded the suspect, said that Choji had confessed to having carnal knowledge of his granddaughter ‘several times.’
According to the commissioner, the suspect claimed that his granddaughter had always slept with him on the same bed, a situation he said tempted him to have sex with her.
Choji, who spoke to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) after he was paraded, said that the girl started asking for more “after the first act.
“The girl has been on my neck because she derives satisfaction in sleeping with me and I had no choice but to satisfy her,” he said.
He blamed his incestuous act on the pressure from his granddaughter and appealed to his wife and children to forgive him. He promised never to commit the crime again.
The police commissioner said the case would be investigated by the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), after which Choji would be charged to court.
