A Police Inspector Gbenga Fajuyi, has been handed 22 years prison sentence for impregnating his own daughter.
According to a report by This day newspaper, Fajuyi was sentenced to the Correctional Centre for Impregnating his 13-year-old daughter, by a Minna Senior magistrate court in Niger state.
He was said to have been having carnal knowledge of his biological daughter from when she was 12 years of age until she became pregnant at 13 years.
He was arraigned before Senior Magistrate Christy Barau on a three count charge of unlawful sexual intercourse, incest, impregnating a female student, and criminal intimidation contrary to section 18 (2) of the Niger State Child Right Law 2010, Section 390 25 (3), and 397 B of the penal code.
Fajuyi pleaded guilty to the charges brought against him but the court ignored his plea and asked for full trial of the convict.
Police Prosecutor Inspector Lawrence Owette, told the court that Fajuyi, age 47, sometimes in 2019, in the Ungwan Nasarawa area of Tafa Local Government, lured his biological daughter, an SS1 student of Government Day Secondary School Sabon-Wuse, into his room and forcefully had sexual intercourse with her.
Owette said as a result the girl was put in the family way and delivered a baby girl.
The prosecution also submitted that Fajuyi warned his daughter not to inform anyone that he was responsible for the pregnancy or he will kill her.
In her Judgement, Senior Magistrate Christy Barau, described the police inspector as “a monster and a disgrace to the police force” adding that “It is sad that this convict, who is a police officer and law enforcement officer saddled with the responsibility of protecting lives and property or fighting crime in the society, will be involved in this type of crime”
