What could be described as signs of the last days or end time happenings is the report you are about to read. Or how else could we describe a situation where a man had to sleep with his daughter and in another instance, a woman has to go to jail for having sex with her son.
In the case of the man called Salisu Husaini of Reshingo, Ashaka town in Gombe, he was promptly arrested and was arraigned yesterday at the Upper Area Court in Bajoga, charged with incest. Husaini is accused of having carnal knowledge of his 17 year-old daughter (name withheld) who is also married.
Police Prosecutor, Cpl. Kolo Michael, told the court that the accused committed the offence two years ago but was not revealed by the son in-law until now. He alleged that Husaini, who had two wives, regularly used his telephone to call out his daughter from her matrimonial home to make love to her.
When the charge was read to him, Husaini pleaded guilty and blamed the devil for it.
“It was the handiwork of the devil. I am pleading with the court to have mercy on me and save me from further embarrassment.”
The Judge, Alhaji Mohammad Yayajo, adjourned the case till July 26 and ordered the accused remanded.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports the suspect had two wives but would always invite the daughter for sex each time the wives were away.
Also in America, a Detroit-based woman, who pleaded guilty to having sex with the biological son she gave up for adoption and later tracked down on the internet, has been sent to jail.
Thirty-six-year-old Aimee L Sword of Waterford Township apologised at her sentencing Monday in Oakland County Circuit Court.
She had pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree criminal sexual conduct in a deal with prosecutors.
Police say Sword used Facebook in 2008 to find her son, whoâ€™s now 16.
She gave him up for adoption as an infant.He testified they had sex in Waterford Township and Grand Rapids.
Waterford Township is 50km north-west of Detroit.
