A 6-year old girl has exposed her father, Mr. Amarachi Chukwuneke, in Lagos after she informed her mother that she had sex with her father when the mother was not at home.
P.M.EXPRESS reports that the 43-year old father, Chukwuneke, has been arrested over the allegation of engaging his 6-year old daughter in sex romp.
The incident happened at Uche Street, Amuwo Odofin area of Lagos, where they reside.
The father was alleged to have removed the victim’s pant and penetrated her when he was alone in the house with the little girl.

The matter was adjourned till 27th February, 2020, for report of the DPP to be ready.
However, it was gathered that the matter may be transferred to the High Court if the DPP finds him culpable and recommends his trial for incest.
