A medical doctor has narrated the despicable story of how a 37 years old man drugged and sexually molested his own daughter.
Doctor Alagbe Oyedeji, who gave the account at the Special Offences Court in Lagos on Tuesday, stated that the victim was just 12 years old, while the father, Emmanuel Igboko, was a commercial motorcyclist.
According to Punch Metro, Emmanuel carried out the inhumane act in their house at Oworonsoki area of Lagos, and he has been charged before Justice Sybril Nwaka for the offense of sexual assault by penetration.
As he was asked to provide evidence on the case by the prosecution lawyer, Doctor Alagbe, who practices his profession at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital in Ikeja, explained that the victim’s vaginal entrance clearly showed redness, while her anal opening was equally loose.
Dr. Alagbe explained, “The victim’s ordeal started in 2016 after she and her sibling moved in with their father after their parents had separated.
“The father came home from work one day and told her that he heard rumors that she was no longer a virgin and that he wanted to examine her by inserting his fingers into her vagina and using his penis to test her virginity.
“He asked her to undress but she was reluctant. When she refused, he beat her and further subjected her to torture. He, however, became nice later and every night after he returned from work, he would give her soft drink and then she would fall asleep and he would have his way.
“It was her constant sleeping in school that drew the attention of her teacher, who asked her what happened and she narrated her ordeal to the teacher, who initially didn’t do anything about it.
“The experience persisted until she got to a new class and the new teacher asked from the former teacher what had happened to the victim. The new teacher had to take it up and the case was reported at the Ketu Police Station; the father was arrested and the victim was taken to a non-governmental organization.
“Upon physical examination from head to toe, there were significant findings on her laps; she had multiple linear pattern bruises, which she said she sustained from being beaten with a cane by her father.
“Upon systemic examination of the victim’s vagina, it was discovered that her vagina was hyperemic (showing redness). Her urethra was also reddened.
“I also discovered that her anal opening (anus) was loosened. There were also areas of laceration around the vagina and thighs. The injuries she sustained on her vagina and thighs showed recent and previous forceful penetration.”
The judge has adjourned the case till 3rd of April.
