A father was arrested on charges of rape after allegedly raping his two young daughters, police in the United Arab Emirates said.
Sharjah Police said that they have arrested the father after being accused of molesting his 9 and 12-year-old daughters.
The abuse came to light after one of the girls told her teacher about her father. Medical tests carried out on the girls confirmed the sexual abuse.
The abuse took place over several years. The children are in the custody of their mother, while the father is awaiting trial.
In February, a man was arrested on charges of rape after allegedly raping his young daughter because his wife dumped him, police in Nigeria said.
Bauchi State Police said that they arrested 45-year-old Abubakar Magaji, after being accused of having an ongoing sexual relationship with his 11-year-old daughter.
During questioning, Magaji told officers that he raped his daughter because he couldn’t control his sexual urges after his wife dumped him.
Magaji, who is a father of four children, said that he regrets what he has done to his daughter.
