‘She is beautiful and I was scared of someone else enjoying her’, Man who impregnated 15-year-old daughter speaks

A 48-year-old farmer and petty trader, Theddius Audu reportedly impregnated his 15-year-old daughter Justina in Wuyeya, a village under Assakio, Lafia Local Government Area of Nasarawa State.

Audu took up the sole responsibility of his daughter’s upbringing after his marriage to Talatu Ayi from Nasarawa Eggon Local Government Area of the state ended 13 years ago due to irreconcilable differences.

The Nation reported that his younger sister who helped out in raising the little girl, died in a tragic accident in January 2019 on her way back from Lafia market. Audu decided to relocate to a three-bedroom apartment he had managed to build in the village after the incident, so his daughter could live comfortably in safety and without any fear. The decision resulted in a pregnancy as Justina is 4 months gone already.


Audu said he always felt pain of someone “toasting” his beautiful daughter and enjoying, after he went through difficulties to raise her. He also described the pregnancy as a “secret arrangement”.

He said;
“She looks beautiful and I always feel the pains that one day, someone else will toast her and start enjoying what I suffered all these years to raise. When her mother left me, I took the pains to bring her up because I could not get married and was alone.
“It started like a joke. I don’t know what came over me; she tried to resist me but I was very harsh on her and she allowed me have my way. Thereafter, we continued unabated. I actually wanted to test her virginity status, to know whether she had started going out with boys but when she told me she missed her period, I decided that she should not abort it.
“She should deliver the baby for me since I don’t have any other child. Thereafter, she can get married to anybody of her choice. This was the secret arrangement we had and I don’t know why she is exposing it now.
“That is the much I can say about it.”
