A married man was arrested for raping his younger sister despite being her guardian.

Police in Nigeria, said that a teenager came into the station to file a complaint against her half-brother, 36-year-old Henry Asuquo.

Asuquo was arrested and arraigned at a Tinubu Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos, on charges of rape, sexual harassment and assault.

The prosecutor, Insp. Nurudeen Thomas, said that the girl, who shares the same mother as the suspect, lived with Asuquo and his wife since she was 5-years-old.

When she turned 11, Asuquo began raping and sodomizing her whenever his wife was away from home. When the victim reached adolescent, she started fighting back.

This caused her brother to be aggressive towards her whenever she made the slightest mistake. When she turned 15-years-old, she began resisting the sexual abuse.

One day, the victim, who is now 15, had enough courage to fight back and squeezed her brother’s testicles.

The prosecutor said that the last time Asuquo tried raping her, the 15-year-old grabbed his scrotum.

“While he was writhing in pain, she had the opportunity to run to the nearest police station to file a report,” Thomas told the court.

Asuquo was arrested and he is being held on N1 million (about $3,000) bail.
