A 30- year-old man, Musa Abubakar from Jigawa State, has admitted to defiling his 9-year-old stepdaughter in Rupokwu, Rivers State.
The suspect, in confession to the crime at the State Criminal Investigation Department, on Wednesday, claimed he indulged in the awful act because his wife always complains of tiredness anytime he wants sex.
According to the victim, her stepfather had been defiling her since she was 4 by sticking his finger in her private part. She said she was too afraid of telling her mother because she was seriously beaten the first time she told her.
She stated that she had to open up again after her mother assured her she would not be beaten.
Spokesperson of the Rivers Police Command, Nnamdi Omoni, confirmed the incident and said that the law will take its course against the suspect.
