64 year old Bassey Archibong, of No. 10 Kunle Dipo Avenue, Majidun, Owutu, in the Ikorodu district of Lagos State, has been imprisoned for raping his four daughters between the ages of 12 and 20.
Archibong had been sexually abusing them since 2016.
He was arraigned on three counts of continuous sexual relations with his daughters, failure to obtain their consent and involvement in an amoral relationship with the victims before the Court of Ikorodu Magistrates, Lagos. The defendant pleaded with the charges not guilty.
John Iberedem, the prosecutor, said Archibong used food as a bait to get the girls to agree to his advances.
He would refer to Lot in the Bible, who had sex with his daughters and was not punished by God, whenever the children objected.
The prosecutor also stated that the offenses were punishable under Section 265 (2) of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2019.
He said, “The defendant beat the children and starved them whenever they confronted him on why he was sleeping with them.
“He would tell them that intercourse between fathers and daughters were normal and approved by God.
“He told the children that God did not punish Lot, who had sexual intercourse with his children, meaning that He approves of the act.”
