A 70-year-old man has been banished from the Okofia Otolo Nnewi community in Anambra State for allegedly impregnating his daughter.
It was gathered that the community sent the man, who hails from Okija in the Ihiala Local Government Area of Anambra State, away after discovering the incestuous act, which resulted in the birth of a baby boy.
A source said, “The man lives in Okofia Otolo Nnewi, but hails from Okija. He impregnated his own daughter for the second time. The man, whose wife died a long time ago, decided to find comfort in the arms of his daughter.
“Information has it that he impregnated his daughter two years ago and they had a baby boy together. But a recent pregnancy sold them out.
“The villagers started investigating the incident when rumours (which) started circulating about them in the village became too much.
“When it was established that the old man had been sleeping with his daughter even before the death of his wife, he and the daughter were asked to leave the community.
“Fresh palm fronds were tied round the man’s neck and his daughter’s legs as a sign that they had engaged in an abominable act.”
Our correspondent gathered that a bus was provided by the community, which evacuated the father, daughter and their property as early as 3am to an unknown destination.
