A 50-year-old father of six, Peter Ayemoba, who was arrested for having carnal knowledge of his two daughters, says he started the illicit affair with them after the demise of his wife who is their mother and that they also gave their consent for him to have sex with them.
Peter was arrested by men of the Niger state police command this week after his daughters aged 22 and 20, reported him to a family member who invited the police.
When interrogated, Ayemoba told the police that he had been sleeping with his daughters since his first wife who is their mother died about seven years ago.
“I started sleeping with my daughters about seven years ago when I lost my wife in 2013. The death of my wife got me so confused that I did not even know when I started sleeping with my daughters. In fact, I don’t know what has come over me.
The death of my wife devastated me to the point that I did not know what I was doing. I suspect that somebody placed a curse on me, because what I have done in the past seven years is not ordinary, frankly speaking.
“What I did after my wife’s death was to bond with my children and they became closer to me until gradually I started sleeping with the girls. Honestly, I cannot explain why I should do that to my own daughters. But there was a spirit that kept telling me that I would not be the first man to sleep with his daughter and at such, I should not worry too much about it.” he said
Speaking further, Peter said
“After my wife’s burial, I started having feelings for my daughters. I would go to their room and play with them until it metamorphosed to having sexual intercourse with them separately on a regular basis but with their consent. Whenever they rejected my sexual demand, I would tell them that I wanted to be closer to them since their mother was no more.
At times I would threaten to kill them and commit suicide if they did not allow me to sleep with them. One day, I had to refer them to the Bible about Lot who had sex with his daughters and was not punished by God. I told them that the intercourse between a father and his daughters was normal and it is written in the Bible.”
The father of six said his second wife had no knowledge of his sexual intercourse with his daughter neither did his four sons know about them. He said what transpired between him and his daughters wasn’t ”ordinary”.
“My daughters, after noticing that I was doing something abominable, forced me to get another wife that would satisfy my sexual urge. But despite the marriage, I still made love to them at the slightest opportunity my new wife was not in the house. Honestly, what is happening to me is not ordinary. I need to go out to sort myself out either physically or metaphysically so that I will have peace of mind.” he said
According to him, his daughters voluntarily and willingly had sex with him.
“They voluntarily, willingly accepted to be having sex with me any time I demanded it. What baffles me is that for the number of years we were having sex, we were happy. Then all of a sudden, they reported the incident to a family member who brought us to where we are (police station). I am still surprised at what they did.
But maybe my cup has filled to the brim, so let the law take its course, I am ready for any eventualities.” he said
The police say he will be charged to court soon.
