Akwa Ibom State police said that they have arrested 66-year-old Sunday Etukudoh, after being accused raping and impregnating the 13-year-old daughter of his brother.

According to the police investigation, Etukudoh persuaded his brother to allow his daughter to live with him in order to help him out with household chores.
