An Edo State Family Court has sentensed a 42-year old man to 14 years imprisonment with hard labour for defiling and putting his teenage daughter in a family way.
The convict identified as Friday Moses was said to have been sleeping with his 13 years old daughter since she was seven after the death of her mother died.
Friday, a commercial motorcycle operator hails from Cross River State and resides in Edo State.
Presiding Magistrate, J.O Ejale who did not give an option of fine said the sentence would serve as a lesson to the convict as well as deterrent to paedophiles.
The victim who is a primary six pupil is now five months and two weeks pregnant.
She is the eldest child of the convict and is currently in the protective custody of the State Ministry of Women Affairs and Social Development for adequate care.
Also, a former seminarian, Benjamin Uzoma Nwachukwu, was also jailed for 20 years by the court for defiling a teenager after a prayer session with the family the previous night.
Others arraigned before the Family Court and were remanded in prison custody for defiling teenagers included one 65 years old Matthew Omokhafe, 31-year-old Pastor Matthew Braimoh and 33-year-old Corporal Michael Eriarebhe.
