The suspect, Abubakar Magaji, a resident of Liman Kagum in Bauchi LGA, said he engaged in the horrific act because his wife abandoned him.
The father of four confessed to raping his daughter twice saying ” I am ashamed of my self because It was temptation that led me to it.
“I divorced my wife and married another wife but unfortunately my wife also left me a month ago so I needed a woman to be with so that was why I did it,” he said.
Parading the suspect along others at the police headquarters, the police Commissioner Lawal Shehu, expressed worry over the increase rate of rape cases in the state.
He, however, vowed that all rapist suspects will be charge to court and be prosecuted.“Since January, we have arrested over 10 suspected rapist, only this week we recorded over 5 cases.
