A 40-year-old man, Lucky Idahosa has been sentenced to 14 years imprisonment by Egor Chief Magistrates’ Court in Benin, Edo for raping his 17-year-old daughter. The Chief Magistrate, Igho Braimah, jailed the accused after he pleaded guilty to the charge, telling the court that he committed the act for money ritual.
Mrs. Braimah said that no matter what a father considered as the opportunity to become rich, he should not yield to the temptation of nursing idea of having canal knowledge of “his blood’’, let alone “really doing it".
Consequently, she sentenced the accused to 14 years jail term.
The victim of the incest told the court that her father gave her concoction, which made her unconscious before he committed the act. She added that her father warned her not to mention it to anyone.
