Of all the reasons in this world to give for his insane act, a man arrested for allegedly defiling his 12-year-old daughter has said that he was left with no option because his wife now looks too old for his liking.

The 49-year-old Nigerian man identified as Ubong Williams Akpan is reportedly in the grips of the country’s Ogun State Police following his arrest on Friday, April 2.

The victim filed a complaint against him at Itele Ota divisional headquarters that he had been abusing her sexually since when she was seven years old.

According to her, she simply could not take the abuse any longer, hence the decision to complain to the police.

The Divisional Police Officer of the Itele Ota division 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.

“Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police, CP Edward Awolowo Ajogun, has ordered the immediate transfer of the case to the family support unit of Ota area command for further investigation and prosecution.

“He also directed that the victim be taken to the general hospital for proper medical treatment,” the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, stated in a release.
