How hard can it possibly be for a man to get a woman to sleep with, that he has to resort to abusing his own children?

The Police in Lagos State have arrested a 53-year-old man for allegedly defiling his daughter and her two siblings.

When the man separated from his wife and took custody of the three children, people must have thought he was being a responsible father.

But sadly, these children may never live a normal life again if they do not get help fast.

The Commissioner of Police in the state, Edgal Imohimi, presented the suspect (name withheld) to newsmen in Lagos on Monday.

Imohimi said the suspect was in the habit of defiling his 3-year-old daughter and her five-year-old and seven-year-old male siblings.

He said the matter was reported on Feb. 2 by a Neighbourhood Corps’ officer, after which investigation and arrest was made.

“When the arrest was made, and the children rescued, the 3-year-old daughter had sustained injury in her private part due to forceful penetration.

“The two other siblings were also abused by the suspect, who is their father. Whenever they refused him penetration through their anus, he beats them.

“The girl had been taken to a hospital for examination and treatment, while the other two had been placed in temporary home,” he said.

The suspect, however, denied abusing his children, saying he didn’t know why they were lying against him.

” I don’t abuse them. I usually drop them with my neighbours when I am going out as I can’t just sit at home and expect food to come.

“Only God will judge who is lying as I don’t know why my children are lying against me,” he said.

The question is, where is their mother? Isn’t it abnormal for a mother to leave her 3-year-old with the father?
