A 46-year-old bus driver identified as Onyiyechi Edum is currently in police net after he allegedly defiled and impregnating his 14-year-old step daughter.
Onyiyechi, a native of Abua in Abua/Odual area of Rivers State, became more involved in sleeping with the girl who calls him Daddy when his wife took ill and was hospitalised for months.
It was gathered that while the randy man was pretending to sympathise with his sick wife, he was sleeping with her daughter who is in JSS in one of the secondary schools in the area.
The suspect, who is currently at the Police Division in Rumuolumeni, Port Harcourt, committed the crime at his residence in Ibodaya, Rumuolumeni.
Speaking on Friday on why he was arrested by the police, Onyiyechi told Southern City News that he was drunk when he slept with his step daughter on different occasions, even when he had earlier claimed that he only had carnal knowledge of the girl once.
According to him, “The police arrested me because they said I impregnated my step daughter. I don’t really know who impregnated her, but I slept with her only one day.
“She is 14 years old. I slept with her when her mother was in the hospital. Her mother is my wife. The mother was in the hospital for three months and some days.
“It was in December that I slept with her. We went to the hospital on October 6, 2015. I slept with her on December 25. After that, I also slept with her on January 3, 2016.
Onyiyechi, however, admitted that he should be blamed for his actions, as he added that too much drinking of alcohol led him to the act.
“I was driving, but when my wife gave birth and had health challenge, I sold the bus. I am not doing anything for now. I don’t know how this pregnancy came about because it has taken a long time I had s*x with her,” he said.
The Divisional Police Officer, Kingsley Chukwueggu, stated that the suspect would be charged to court for his actions, as the law does not condone the defiling and impregnating a minor.
