March 6, 2014 – “A Spirit Told Me To Rape My Daughter” – Father Confesses In Court

A 42-year-old father, Pedro Anegbe, has told an Ebute Meta Magistrate’s Court that a spirit asked him to rape his 15-year-old daughter to get a job.

He said the voice ordred him to rape the girl shortly after he lost his job and was idle at home.

Anegbe was arraigned on two counts for defiling his 15-year-old daughter (name withheld) at their home on Ifelodun Street, Fatolu Ipaja, Lagos State.

The Investigating Police Officer, Sergeant Bakare Murtala, told the court his findings in the course of investigation.

Murtala said, “The defendant is the biological father of the girl. She told us her father had sexually harassed her. We questioned him on his daughter’s allegation and he confessed to the crime. He said he had raped her twice.”

The magistrate, Olanrewaju Olatunji, asked Anegbe why he raped his own daughter.

The father of three said, “I am actually living with my wife and three children. I have two girls and a boy. She is my first born. I have had sex with her just two times. The first was on January 27, 2014. But I cannot remember the date of the second one.”

On how it all began, he said, “I did it because I thought it was God talking to me, but later I knew it was an evil spirit. The voice said I needed power. To get the power, the voice said I must damage some things.

“I started destroying the clutch and brake of the vehicle I was given to drive. Then the voice told me I should stop delivering money to the owner of the vehicle after each day’s work. I stopped and I was sacked.

“I became idle after I lost my job. The voice came again, saying I should have sex with my daughter or else I would not get another job. That was why I slept with her.”

However, despite his admission, the defendant pleaded not guilty to the charge of rape.

He also told the court that he wanted his case tried at the High Court.

Olatunji said, “You have confessed that you raped your daughter, why then did you still say you were not guilty of the crime after the charge was read to you? Don’t you understand the charge or what is the problem?”

“I am just forcing myself to talk, because the voice said I should not say anything,” Anegbe said.

His defence counsel, Rasaq Adeyemi, citing Section 115 of the Law of Lagos State, Nigeria, 2011, prayed the court to admit him to bail in liberal terms since he was still presumed innocent until proven guilty by the court.

In his ruling, the magistrate said, “This is a bailable offence, but it is a family matter. The defendant is to be remanded in prison pending legal advice from the Directorate of Public Prosecution.”

The matter was adjourned till April 4, 2014.

  1. What a world! And he keeps listening to d so called voice, one day dat same voice will put him in bigger trouble and there will be no way out! Just go for dilverance. How that one that affect price of petrol, so Tay NNPC don reduce the oil for sardin. Lol

  2. This is mental illness, hearing voices is part of mental health problem. Putting on jail will not resolve the issue at hand , all what he needs it’s psychiatric help

  3. what do you expect? when people will go and work in hot sun sweating everyday and come back to sleep without electricity. no light to enjoy fan and aircondition to cool their brain. people start hearing voices when thier brain is overloaded with stress. now i assure you that the spirit will not follow you to jail.

  4. An idle mind is the devil’s workshop. The same spirit should have told him to go and drink poison instead of committing this dastardly act of deflowering his own biological daughter. What a shame?

  5. The devil at work, An idle man is the devil’s workshop, the bible says that on the last days iniquity shall abide and the love of many shall wax cold, pls anytime any spirit is telling u anything negative go for deliverance.

  9. Mr Anegbe,you have destroyed your daughter’s life,How is she ever gonna trust another man in her life if her biological father did this to her,The stigma you planted in this girl will haunt her for the rest of her life. What type of job did your personal spirit claimed you will secure ? Porn ? Chei!,I still can’t get this and is too big and rough for me to digest.Mr Anegbe o o o we are talking about your own daughter you got from God.Huh, for real mr Anegbe ? Where is that spirit now Mr Anegbe ? What else is the spirit asking you to do? Why didn’t your spirit ask you to become a pastor.I still can’t get it,are you for real Mr,did anybody place a curse on you,if you think you can plead insanity and escape judgement for your action you are indeed deceiving yourself.You need to make a iron mask and hide your face for the rest of your life even in prison.Sorry to the little girl and her mom,That monster is not meant to be your dad,I can’t close my eyes and sleep since I saw this story without thinking how this happened and what he felt while taking off his pants before the act and how he felt after everything.If you ask me i will great to him that made him go back the second time.The punishment you need is still warming up and training for you beast.

  10. wah!its realy unbearable,go seek total repentance o,huh,you are now disgrace to your family ooh,seek change and salvation oo.
