Police are looking to arrest a stepfather who was accused of raping his stepdaughter and getting her pregnant, police in Nigeria said.

Ondo State police said that they are prepared to file charges against 45-year-old Femi Orojo, after his 13-year-old stepdaughter was found to be 5 months pregnant.

The mother of the girl, Bunmi Joshua, told investigators that she married the suspect six years ago. Last week, a neighbor told her that her daughter looks to be pregnant.

She approached her daughter, who confirmed that she was pregnant, but she refused to reveal who had sex with her.

Eventually, the mother took her daughter to their pastor, and the girl revealed that her stepfather raped her several months ago.

The girl said that her stepfather came into her room with a knife and forced himself on her. He also threatened to kill her if she tells anybody about the attack.

Joshua confronted her husband, and he confessed to having sex with the girl. Orojo fled from the house. Police asked anyone with information about the whereabouts of the suspect to come forward.
