Dec 3rd, 2012 – Nigerian Man Jailed For Sleeping With Daughter In Benin City

A Benin Chief Magistrate’s Court has sentenced a 47-year-old father, Godwin Allu, to seven years imprisonment with hard labour for having unlawful carnal knowledge of his 12-year-old daughter.

Allu was accused of sleeping with his daughter on Nov. 20, at 19 Omono Street, off Stadium road, Benin City.

The offence is punishable under section 208 of the Criminal Code cap 48 Vol .11 of the defunct Bendel State of Nigeria, 1976, which is applicable to Edo. The little girl had testified that her father had unlawful carnal knowledge of her three times at different occasions.

The victim, who had blood stains on her uniform, informed her headmistress at Obaseki Primary School, Benin of the incident.

The headmistress later reported the case at the Airport Police Station, also in Benin. When he was arraigned before the court, the accused admitted committing the crime and pleaded for leniency.

Delivering judgment last week in Benin, the Chief Magistrate, Mr. Peter Obaseki, described the crime as bestial for which the accused deserved no mercy.

He said, “That the accused had carnal knowledge with a 12-year-old child on three separate occasions is bad enough.

“It is heart rendering that he was doing it with his own daughter, who even had blood stains on her uniform on the day this incest was reported.

“The case of sexual offence in this jurisdiction is not only increasing, but that of parents defiling their own daughters is also becoming common knowledge,” the Magistrate said.

Obaseki said, “It is necessary that the court join other stakeholders in taking a serious stand in order to wipe out this monster before the society’s moral fabric is completely destroyed.

’‘For this reason, the convict must be put out of circulation for sometime so that he would not be able to continue with his bestial activities.

’‘It is my prayer that God will forgive and change him for the better while in prison.
’‘In the circumstance, the convict is sentenced to seven years imprisonment with hard labour. There shall be no option of fine.”

The court also ordered the victim be taken to an orphanage for care and protection (Credit: News of the People)

  2. he’s a cursed fellow. As for felix christophe, nine days r for d thief, but only one day is for d owner. Repent or urs will be worse. U wnt even live to tell d story. Felix Alluu

    • He’ll still be saved if he repent,but if he doz nt,he will be damned in hell. I only pity dat small girl,my prayer is dat God wil help her.

  3. it is unethical for fathers to be defiling their own daughters. lets always remember to pray for our greate nation. my prayer is that God should av mercy on him

  4. I realy believe one doctor which his name i have forgoten, which says that 80th percent of children in nigeria are not biological father of their children, what a world, God pls have mercy on ur children

  5. i urge d Nig. law maker to add dead penalty to dis offence becus is becoming too comon in our country 4 crying out loud how can a man have sex with her blood relation not to talk about father sex doughter is a shamful attitud atrosity, sacrilage, abomination, babaric people shld stop dat art for Christ sake.

  6. It’s bad enough for us to deal with the 80% of children are not biological father to their children does not mean he should sexually abuse 12yr under his guidance as a father
    This is awful in the sight of God and man

  7. you are a bastard to ask forgiveness for such beastial act, there is no forgiveness for such a pedophiliac incestuous rapist in the cloak of a father. This law is too weak what is 7yrs (3 and half years real time) compared to the crime of pedophilia , rape and incest,thus it’s growing popularity. However, if death by torture was the price though not pricy enough it would have nipped this seemly steady growing monster in bud.
