An Ikeja Magistrates’ Court in Lagos on Wednesday remanded, at the Kirikiri Prisons, Apapa, one Idris Abu who confessed to sexually abusing his two-year-old daughter.

The Magistrate, T. A. Elias, remanded Mr. Abu, 43, after he pleaded guilty.

Mr. Elias adjourned the case till October 19 for presentation of the facts of the case and sentencing.

Mr. Abu, a resident of Agege, Lagos, was arraigned for indecent treatment of a child.

The prosecutor, Rachael Donny, had told the court that the accused inserted his finger on his daughter’s private part on July 29 at his residence.

“The accused always inserted one of his fingers into his baby’s private part, ignoring her cries,” he said.

Mr. Donny, a police sergeant, said that the mother of the child noticed that the baby always complained that she felt pains on her private part.

The prosecutor said that the accused had earlier directed his wife to be sleeping in their parlour.

He said the accused told his wife that he wanted to be sharing their bedroom with only the child.

“The baby used to cry in the middle of the night; whenever the mother rushed to the room she caught her husband naked with their daughter, with his manhood erected while he was dipping his finger in her vagina,” she said.

According to the prosecutor, whenever the woman confronted the accused, he threatened her with divorce.

He noted that the offence contravened Section 135 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the section provides for seven years imprisonment on conviction.

    All Yoruba Moslems must convert to Christianity. If ogbeni Idris Abu was a Christian man he would not have the urge to abuse his own 2 year old daughter. I know julius will jump in and insult me for saying this but the truth must be told.

      Idris Abu is not Yoruba.
