Elijah and his family were subsequently banished from the community after he allegedly confessed to engaging in the despicable act with his daughter.
We reliably gathered that the man was exposed when the sexually assaulted girl ran out of their home unclad in the middle of the night and was held by the security men guarding the community.
Upon interrogation by the security men, she told them that she ran out unclad because her father wanted to kill her with sex, adding that she could no longer bear
his sexual assault on her.
“I ran out when my father wanted to kill me with sex. He has been having sexual intercourse with me since I was seven years old and my mother knew about it. My mother and I ran away from him to come and hide here but we don’t know how he was able to trace us down here,” she reportedly told the guards.
Shade Olusesi, Eljah’s wife who is also a nursery school teacher in the neighbourhood, when queried by the community, said that when she caught her husband in the act with their daughter and reported the incident to her in-laws, they begged her.
She said that her husband equally begged her and promised that he will not repeat the shameful act again. She said she believed him, adding that to her utmost surprise, Elijah still continued the act with their daughter whenever she is not at home.
She added that her husband was sleeping with both of them simultaneously without her knowledge.
She said further that she stopped him from sleeping with her immediately she discovered he was having carnal knowledge of their daughter, adding that she had to run away with the girl from their former home to Adiyan in Ogun State.
She told the community that she did not know how her husband was able to trace them down to the remote village.
The Ekiti State-born bricklayer allegedly confessed to the crime after the OPC members took him round the community, and was banished from the community afterwards.
