His words:

“I was working in their house when I saw the girl and I touched her and she hugged me before I put my finger into her private part. I did not sleep with her but I fingered her. 

It was when she was going that I noticed she was stained with blood and I followed her to the bathroom to clean her up. 

I don’t know what come over me because I was never involved in such an act and as a father, I will not be happy to see my daughter being treated like this, but I will take responsibility if the parents insisted I must marry her.” 

The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Femi Joseph, however, said the father of three would soon be arraigned in court after the conclusion of the investigation.
