A father was arrested on a charge of rape after allegedly having sex with his young daughter and getting her pregnant, police in Nigeria said.

Bayelsa said that they have arrested the father identified as Bamekpa, after being accused of having sex with his sisters and 12-year-old daughter, and forcing them to have abortions when he learned that they became pregnant.

According to the police investigation, Bamekpa began having sex with his daughter when she was 11 years old. At the age of 12, the girl became pregnant.
