The Edo State police command has arrested a 28-year-old man, one Blessing Enoyoze, for defiling two of his wife’s nieces to allegedly ‘appease angry gods’.It was gathered that the accused reportedly committed that act after he claimed that a native doctor told him to sleep with two virgins to appease the gods in order for his ailing first son to get well.
According to The Nation, the unidentified native doctor, had reportedly told him that his son took ill because his wife slept with another man, adding that the wife who confessed to have committed adultery, offered to bring two of her nieces to her husband.
Reports indicate that one of the victims, whose name was not mentioned, could not live with the shame, hence, she invited the police.
The wife of the suspect, who anonymously spoke, said she went out the night her husband defiled her nieces, noting that she succumbed to pressure from her husband after she was caught with another man.
The Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abdulkadir Mohammed when contacted after the matter was reported to the station by one of the victims, said, it was a family issue to be settled among them.
