According to Orilonise, he said he raped his daughter to ascertain if she was still a virgin.
When asked by the Chief Magistrate, Mr Taiwo Olaniran, why he committed such act against his daughter, the suspect said that he was only trying to protect her.
During his confessional statement, he said when he discovered she was a virgin, he continued sleeping with her every morning before she goes to school and in the night.
He also said he lost his wife and since then he has been taking care of the victim and her siblings.
However, his plea was not granted by the court.
