A 49-year-old man, Ubong Williams Akpan, has reportedly defiled his 12-year-old daughter in Ogun State, saying his wife was no more attractive to him.

The girl had reported at the police station that her father had been abusing her sexually since when she was seven years.
The Ogun State police spokesman, Abimbola Oyeyemi, told DAILY POST on Monday that the girl revealed that “this has been going on for the past five years, and when she can no longer bear it, she decided to complain to the police.”
Upon the report, the DPO of Itele-Ota division, CSP Monday Unoegbe, was said to have detailed his detectives to the scene where the suspect was promptly arrested.
“On interrogation, he confessed to the commission of the crime, claiming that his wife is appearing too old, and she is no longer looking attractive to him,” Oyeyemi said.
