A man in Rivers State has reportedly confessed to sexually abusing his stepdaughter after his wife refused to cooperate for intercourse.
Thirty-year-old Musa Abubakar reportedly told the police his wife had been complaining of being weak.
The suspect reportedly confessed at the State Criminal Investigation Department where he was taken to after he was arrested.
The state police spokesman, Nnamdi Omoni, confirmed the incident and added that the law would take its course against the suspect.
Police say the suspect will be charged and prosecuted
According to reports, the nine-year-old victim narrated that the stepfather started defiling her at the age of four.
He had allegedly stuck his finger in her private part, the little girl said, adding that she was too afraid to tell her mother because the first time she did, the mother beat her up.
The minor, who stated that they lived at Rupokwu in Obio Akpor local government area, said she had to open up after the mother assured her she would not be beaten.
“I told my mother the truth and I was examined by neighbours before the matter was reported to the Police,” the victim said.
