OMG! Man Arrested For Impregnating His 14 Year Old Daughter In Lagos

It was gathered that the victim has put to bed a baby girl and they were brought before the Ikeja Magistrates court when Johnson was arraigned on Wednesday.

It was gathered that the victim revealed to the sister of her late mother and Johnson was confronted. He threatened to kill them including the baby.
The matter was first reported at the Ikotun Police Division before it was transferred to the gender section at the Police Command, Ikeja, Lagos.
Akwa Ibom State born Dominic accepted that he did it but that he was drunk the day he slept with her. He reportedly told the police that his wife died and he had no money to marry another wife and so was tempted to sleep with the victim but not with the intention to impregnate her.

The matter was adjourned till 8 May, 2018 for the report of DPP advice to be ready. It was gathered that Johnson may have committed a serious criminal offence that may land him in prison if found guilty.
