A man has been arrested by a vigilante group in Amukpe area of Sapele, Delta State, for allegedly raping and impregnating his teenage daughter.
The middle-aged man identified as David Akpokpokpo reportedly had carnal knowledge of his daughter, Mercy Akpokpokpo, which eventually resulted in pregnancy and birth of a now three month old baby.
According to reports, the suspect was arrested by a vigilante group in Amukpe on Friday, August 27, 2021, after his daughter reported to them.
Mercy who disclosed the reason she didn’t report all the while, said it’s because her father, David threatened to kill her if she opened up to anyone, but eventually became fed up with the whole incident.
Following his arrest, and interrogation by the vigilante group, David who claimed to have slept with his daughter only once under the influence of alcohol, also admitted being the father of her child.
However, Mercy countered him, saying that he raped her four times.
