Nigerian man- Femi Peter Abidoye, who was arrested for sleeping with his daughters said he wanted to punish them for being recalcitrant. The 30-year-old commercial bus driver had carnal knowledge of his two step-daughters- 13 and 16 yrs each in the Bariga area of Lagos.
Trouble apparently started for the victims after their mum- a cleaner in a hospital in Lagos, separated from her first husband and married Abidoye.
It is gathered that the victims’ step-father started violating the eldest of the girls (15yrs then), who unable to bear the sexual abuse, fled home, leaving her two siblings at the mercy of the pedophile.
According to the two younger girls, Abidoye started the sexual assault by fingering their private parts, before eventually progressing to penetration.
They however claimed to have reported the situation to their mother who refused to believe them.

Fortunately, the roof came crashing, two months ago after the children complained to the Child Protection Network at Shomolu, from where they were directed to the Bariga Police Division. Though Abidoye fled his 27, Seriki Compound Bariga, apartment, in a bid to evade arrest he was arrested yesterday, when he attended his mother’s burial ceremony.
During interrogation, the suspect, who initially claimed the allegations were false, later admitted and said he did what he did to punish them for being recalcitrant.
