A father was arrested on a charge of rape after allegedly having sex with his two daughters and getting one of them pregnant, police in Nigeria said.

Benue State police said that they have arrested 42-year-old Thomas Akate, after being accused of having sex with his daughters, aged 10 and 12.

The abuse came to light after the 12-year-old girl became pregnant.

According to the police investigation, the father abused his daughter numerous times and threatened to kill them if they revealed what he was doing to them.

When the 12-year-old girl became pregnant, a neighbor suspected the father of abusing his children and called the police.

Police arrested Akate, and he was charged with two counts of rape. In court, Akate pleaded not guilty. He was booked into jail and his bail was set at N50,000 ($251).
