A woman has narrated the shocking details of how her husband raped and impregnated their 13-year-old girl after she filed for a divorce before a Sharia court Magajin Gari, Kaduna State.
The visibly aggrieved woman, Maryam Manta in a writ of summon submitted before the court, accused her 40-year-old husband, Hafizu Isyaku of gaining a carnal knowledge of their daughter when they were still living at Maraba in Abuja.
Manta told the court that her husband’s unruly act forced her to flee their Abuja home and relocate to Kaduna State with her six children.
She said: “When I returned from where I went to see my parents, as a mother and as a woman, I noticed my daughter was not behaving normal and at the same time sick.
“But I didn’t suspect anything because my husband do constantly gave her some concoctions to drink which he claimed was going to heal the daughter’s ailment.
“But when the ailment persisted and I noticed my daughter had missed her period, I questioned and threatened her to tell me if she had any affair with a man and she eventually opened up to me that her father had been making love to her.
“So, when I confronted Hafizu with the issue, he cried and confessed about joining a cult group which mounted pressure on him to get his daughter pregnant and also abort it as part of the sacrifice.
“I became confused and cried my life out and he promised to disssociate himself from the cult and I went together with him to the hospital where the pregnancy was aborted,” she told the court.
She said further that, she later found out that the father continued to have sexual affair with their daughter even after the abortion, confirming to have caught him redhanded in the act.
She added: “I became heartbroken and absconded from his home, that is Maraba and returned to Kaduna with all my six children. It was when I arrived Kaduna that I reported the issue to the District Head of Kabala Doki, Danlami Bawa who invited my husband and I. After all discussions, I sought for divorce.”
