Unbelievable! 67-Year-Old Man Turns Imbecile aAter Impregnating His Own Daughter Twice

It was a tragic story that started much earlier, when, John Oyewo, the 67-year-old resident of Manfile community in Upper Gaa Akanbi, Ilorin in South Local Government Area of Kwara State, and formerly married to one Yetunde, separated from her to marry another woman, by name, Feyisayo, in 1992.

Between Yetunde and John, they had a girl, Esther. Then 15, she would go to stay with her dad, and his new wife, now her stepmother who was a businesswoman and was often away from home. One thing led to another and in the course of the visits, an illicit love affair started between father and daughter.

How it started

She recalled the genesis of the sordid affair. 

“My father came home one night. I was fast asleep when she woke me up and asked if I had had my bath. I said no. Then he asked me to bathe with him and I joined him innocently. While in the bathroom, he started touching my sensitive parts. Irritated, I initially resisted him but when I could no longer hold it, I became aroused and responded to his touching. We had it right there in the bathroom. Later, it became a constant thing. I was afraid but because I had nowhere to go, I endured it.”

The incestuous relationship resulted in Esther’s first pregnancy. She later gave birth to a child who died shortly after birth under mysterious circumstance. Still, the shameful affair continued. The innocent girl got pregnant for her dad the second time and had another child who they christened Oreoluwa.

Reward of sacrilege

This time around, family and relations felt that they had had enough of this nonsense and sent father and daughter packing from their midst by way of communal ex-communication. That was how the duo left the family house to settle in their present abode at Manfile area in Upper Gaa Akanbi.

But while there, the second child who was hale and hearty and had started walking about, suddenly took ill and died. As if that was not enough ordeal, the father became afflicted with imbecility and left home never to be seen again, till today.

As you read this, only God knows where he is. To compound it all, Esther, now 39, has been afflicted with a strange illness - the nature of which she would not want the public to know. But a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) is assisting her, she said.  In tears, she said to Saturday Sun:  “I thought what I was doing then was right not knowing I have committed a great crime that has ruined my life.”

Experts, clerics speak

Experts reveal that indulging in incest can have disastrous psychological effect on those involved. Stephen Oni, a psychologist, warns that, “fathers of any incestuous relationship can have psychopathic personalities” while “children born out of incest might start experiencing emotional shutdown when they reach adulthood and this could result in schizophrenia or multiple personality disorders.”

Imam Abubakre Kamal, an Islamic cleric in Ilorin, recommends death sentence for anybody who engages in it. “Any father who commits incest should be killed,” he said. “If they are killed, it will serve as a warning to others. In Saudi Arabia, for instance, if such crime is committed, it is outright death.”
