According to Elkana, the teenager said that her father started having sexual intercourse with her when she was a young girl and threatened to deal with her if she tells anybody.

Also, in a similar development, a 26 years old man, Chinedu Obi, has been arrested by Aguda Police Station for defiling his employer’s daughters at Aguda.
Elkana said that Obi had sexual intercourse with the 12-year-old twins when his employer left the two girls (names withheld) in his custody.
“The suspect has been arrested and he confessed to the commission of the crime.
“He said that he started having sexual intercourse with the girls in 2019,” the officer said.
