Daddy Raping His Daughter: I Did It To Confirm Her Virginity – Father Tells Court
A 37-year-old man, confesses to repeatedly raping his 15-year-old daughter to confirm if she was a virgin. Another father rapes daughter story.
A 37-year-old man, Wasiu Orilonise has confessed to repeatedly raping his 15-year-old daughter. He claims he did it to confirm if she was a virgin and to protect her. This is yet another daddy raping his daughter in this world. It would seem the unfortunate incident has become more rampant lately.
Wasiu who appeared in Oyo State Magistrates’ Court sitting in Ibadan, however, appealed to the court to forgive him as he did that only to confirm if her daughter was still a virgin.
The prosecutor, Mr Sunday Ogunremi, told the court that the accused had sometime in December 2018 at Omo village, Agbofieti, Ibadan, in the Ibadan Magisterial District, raped the victim without her consent.
Ogunremi said the offence was contrary to and punishable under Section 34, sub-sections 1 and 2 of the Child Rights Law of Oyo State of Nigeria, 2006.
The accused's plea was, however, ignored during the arraignment.
The Testimony of The Daddy Raping His Daughter
The Chief Magistrate, Mr Taiwo Olaniran, sought to know what pushed him into defiling his biological daughter. Orilonise said he was the sole guardian and caretaker of the victim and her siblings. The defendant told the court how he lost his wife a few years ago. He told the court that he committed the act in order to protect his daughter.
Orilonise said the incident happened when he was trying to ascertain if the victim had lost her virginity. He added that he began having sex with her regularly after discovering that she was still a virgin. He would abuse his daughter before she would leave for school and at night.
The magistrate berated fathers who sexually abuse their daughters and other under-aged girls; saying they were allowing the devil to use them to destroy the society.
He ordered that the accused be remanded in the Agodi Prison pending legal advice from the Director of Public Prosecutions. Furthermore, he adjourned the case until July 30, 2019.

How To Teach Your Daughters About Abuse To Avoid Another Daddy Raping His Daughter
Coach your child that if somebody gives them unwanted attention or makes unusual advances; they should ask that person to back off assertively, even if it’s somebody they know. Abusers are often familiar faces.
Know if it is a good touch or bad touch
Sit with your daughter and son and tell them about good touch and bad touch. The more aware they are the safer they’ll be.
Keep your eyes and ears open
If your child takes the bus or rickshaw from school, advice her to not to fall asleep while she rides back home, and ask her to keep a check if the driver is taking her to the right place or not. Show her some landmarks, shops, houses which she should look for in case she feels the driver is taking her somewhere else or taking an unfamiliar route. S/he should intimate you or another family member and should stick to her friends on the bus.
Ask for help and help others
Encourage your child to ask for help and to help others. If your child ever finds herself in danger, she should ask for help. Also, ask your child to help others if they see someone in a situation like this. If s/he is not capable to help then s/he should ask someone else to help. Scream, shout, run, hide, but your child should not stay silent.
