A teen girl escaped from her home to a nearby church after being raped and sexually harassed by her own father, police in Nigeria said.
Lagos State police said that they have arrested 48-year-old Adeboye Waheed, after being accused of raping his 14-year-old daughter twice.
The girl who lived with her father, stepmother and four siblings, ran away from home as she could no longer suffer abuse from her father.
The girl told investigators that her father began touching her private parts when she was 12 years old. The girl was sleeping on the floor of her bedroom one night, when her father entered.
He asked her if she ever had sex, and she said “no.” The father then proceeded to have sex with his daughter, telling her that he wanted to check if she was still a virgin.
Several weeks later, he raped his daughter again. The following day, the girl packed her belongings and fled from the home. The father apologized for his actions.
Waheed was arrested and charged with rape.
