50-year-old man, who was reported to have impregnated her 14-year-old daughter, has murdered the girl to cover up her crime.
The man identified as Williams and a native of Ile Onisa Quarters committed the dastardly act in Emure Local Government Area of Ekiti State.
Residents of the community noted that Williams had some few months ago put his 14-year-old daughter in the family way, after series of alleged illicit affair with the innocent girl.
According to a source, the girl began to develop a protruding belly and no one was seen with her except her father.
The neighbours who had been suspicious of the unholy act between the father and daughter began to peddle rumours about the source of the girl’s pregnancy.
The rumour became the talk of the town and villagers spread the gossip like wild fire.
Everyone began to point fingers at the father whenever he passed on the streets.
According to Anike, a lady who resides in the community, Williams woke up on Sunday, September 4, and took the “expectant girl” to his farm in Aba Iso area of the community where the murder took place.
“We are sure Williams killed his pregnant girl so as to cover up his crime, because the girl’s pregnancy was already becoming very conspicuous and everyone knew that it was her father who slept with her,” the lady said.
“It took us a while before we were able to apprehend Williams and drag him to the Oba’s palace, Oba Emmanuel Adebayo who is himself a retired Police Commissioner.
“The monarch has since handed him over to the Civil Defence Corps who have since taken up the matter,” another resident, Omodele, said.
However, the Ekiti State Police Public Relation Officer, Mr. Alberto Adeyemi said there was no official report on the matter to the police authority in the state.
