After he was caught trying to rape his 15-year old daughter, Alex said that he was only trying to test her virginity.
The incident occurred at his apartment on Abiodun street, Ajegunle, Lagos state.
The girl’s screams alerted neighbours who forced the door open and handed over Alex to the police at Ajegunle police station. Alex has now been released on bail however.
According to reports, Alex had told Agnes to undress up to her underwear, and allegedly wanted to make love to her but she raised the alarm.
He said: “His wife was not at home when he wanted to perpetrate the act but the man denied doing that. You know that nobody will agree that he wanted to rape his daughter. Police acted on the information given to us and even took the minor to the general hospital for medical examination.”
According to the source, Alex claimed that he only wanted to check whether his daughter had been breached.
“He wanted to know whether his daughter is still a virgin or not. So he decided to insert his fingers, to know her situation, according to him,” he said.
