A trader, Mrs. Tope Ogba, yesterday told an Ikeja Domestic Violence and S*xual Offence Court that her husband, Gabriel Ogba, r*ped their two adult daughters.
Led in evidence by the prosecutor, Mrs. K. A. Momoh-Ayokambi, the witness alleged that he also defiled their underage daughter and torched her.
Mrs Ogba said she was unaware of the molestation, which had been on for years, until it was revealed by the youngest daughter.
She said: “I did not know what was going on; it was when he assaulted my third daughter that I got to know what was going on. I later heard about the assault of my older daughters from neighbours. When I asked my older daughters about the rumours, they initially denied it. I got to know about the assault of my third daughter from her teacher…”
The trader said a month after she reported the case, he became aggressive towards her.
