Certain actions are better watched in a horror movie that seen in real life, sometimes is even more absorbable as a nightmare that breaks into a new day.
Like when a father defiles his daughter, then imagine four daughters, all minor.
That is the story of a father of six, Sunday Julius, who is in police custody in Lagos over allegation of defilement of his daughters aged 7, 10, 11 and 15.
Julius, who lives with his family in a room apartment in the Alimosho area of the state, was reportedly arrested on Monday.
His wife, Semiat, raise an alarm and invited the police from the Moshalashi Police Station.
Punch reports that Julius has a history of child molestation as he was first arrested 7 years ago when his first daughter revealed that the father was molesting her.
He was however said to have been freed through the intervention of neighbours and relations.
According to the wife who hawks on the streets, the man usually committed the act in the middle of the night and during the day when she had gone out.
The eldest daughter, 15, who is in Senior Secondary School one, explained that her father first defiled her one evening when she came back from Arabic class.
Two other siblings aged seven and 11 said their dad sexually harassed them twice in the night separately and warned them not to tell anyone.
But the 10-year-old girl among them said her father had molested her “many times at night.”
Asked why they didn’t scream for help, they said their father usually shushed them up or covered their mouths.
The Founder of Esther Child Rights Foundation, a non-governmental organisation following up the case, Esther Ogwu, said she was shocked to hear about the incident.
She said, “I have been handling rape cases but I have never seen this type.”
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, who confirmed Julius’ arrest, said the Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, had directed the gender unit of the police command to take over the case.
