A man in his late ’60s was, on Tuesday, banished with his daughter from Okofia community in Okofia, Otolo Nnewi, Anambra State, for impregnating his daughter for a second time.
According to a Facebook user Chinonso Okoro who announced the incident via a Facebook group, the community decided to banish the man because instead of repenting of his wrong deed, he decided to do it a second time.
A picture shared by Chinonso showed members of the community handing the man and his daughter fresh palm fronds, while some more palm fronds were tied round the man’s neck and his daughter’s legs as sign that they were engaged in abominable acts.
The second picture showed a bus laden with their property and ready to drive out of the community while in another picture his daughter was seen carrying a less than a year old baby which allegedly was a result of the first pregnancy.
The unidentified man is said to hail from Okija, in Ihiala Local Government Area but has lived in Nnewi for a long time.
Chinonso in his post said: “Happening now at Okofia Otolo Nnewi the location of the Unizik college of health. This man from Okija impregnated his own daughter for the second time. Now they’re asked to leave Nnewi. Wonders shall never end.
A resident in the area, Mr. Ikechukwu Anaocha, who spoke to News Express expressed shock that the man did not repent after the first pregnancy.
He said: “I know the man personally. I think he is sick in the head. Whatever will make a sane man want to sleep with his daughter? That’s madness. They have defiled the land and deserve to be banished. Abomination should not be condoned in whatever guise.”
