A 40-year-old man from Akwa Ibom State, Okon Jimmy Amah, has confessed to having s*x with 2 of his daughters.
The father of four has been accused of turning his teenage daughters to s*x slaves.
Amah confessed to the crime after being taken to the State High Court in Uyo on Thursday.
He has been reported to have had s*xual intercourse with the girls different times, especially at midnight in their home.
One of the victims, Enobong, 16, is a JSS3 student who trades in recharge cards was living with her mum in Benin, Edo State, until April 9, 2015, when she decided to visit her dad in Uyo. This was when Amah’s shameful act begun.
She said, “My father started soliciting s*x from me. In fact, that April, my father forcefully had s*xual intercourse with me in our small room. He had s*x with me in the middle of the night. He has had s*x with me several times. I have lost count of the number of times he had s*x with me.
“What is making this issue explode now is that one day, after I returned from selling recharge cards, my father got angry that I got home late. I tried to explain to him that I had to balance my account. He refused to accept my explanation. He started flogging me with a fan belt.
“My father beating me is nothing new but the beating of that particular day, was too severe. The beating left a lot of bruises on my body. It was so obvious that one of my customers, who noticed the bruises the following day, asked me what happened.
“I poured out my heart to the customer. The shocked customer happened to be a lawyer who took the matter to the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Welfare, Akwa Ibom State.
“I was invited to share my horrifying experience.”
She also said she had once reported the matter to her stepmother, about her father having s*x with her and her 13 years old younger sister, Imaobong.
On her part, Imaobong said she was 11-years-old when her father started having s*x with her.
Imaobong narrated her ordeal in tears saying, “my father returned home one day and called me to a quiet place. He asked me whether I had ever had s*x with a man before. I said no. He said he would be the first man to have s*x with me. I was shocked. I wanted to say something, but he shouted at me to shut up.
“When it was midnight, my father defiled me. I cried and felt ashamed. He defiled me, not once, not twice. He defiled me several times. One day, my mother heard me crying, she came to me. I told her the little I could. My mum was angry. But my father didn’t stop having s*x with me. My mum knows about it,” she added.
Amah was later arraigned on a 3-count charge of inc*st, carnal knowledge and assault, contrary to Section 242 and 364 of the Criminal Code, Laws of Akwa Ibom State, after the Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Welfare referred the case to the police.
Amah pleaded guilty to the charges but said he was only attempting to check if the girls were still virgins.
Amah said: “Yes, I slept with my daughters in the bedroom room, while my wife was sleeping in the sitting room. My wife was ill with malaria. She had been ill for a week. Sometimes, my wife used to deny me s*x. That was why I solicited s*x from my daughters.
“Aside from my wife sexually starving me, I suspected that my daughter, Imaobong, wasn’t a virgin.”
He further said, “I suspected that Imaobong has had s*x with a man. But when I inserted my manhood into her v**ina, I discovered that she had never had s*x. At that point, I immediately removed my manhood from her v**ina.
“In the case of Enobong, I also intended to find out if she has had s*xual intercourse with any man.
“When I inserted my manhood into her v**ina, I discovered that no man has had s*x with her. I immediately removed my manhood.”
The case has been adjourned till September 12, while Amah has been ordered by the judge to be remanded in prison custody.
