A 75 year old grandfather who lives in Bukuru, Jos South Local Government Area of Plateau State, Nigeria, and goes by the name Umoru Choji, has openly confessed to having sex with two of his granddaughters who are 14 and 11 years old respectively.
After being paraded by the State Commissioner of Police, Nasiru Oki, the old man agreed that he had had sex with the girls several times, however, on the basis that the girls lured him into doing the shameful deed and that they reported the long-time incestuous act because he had decided to put a stop to it. The man had this to say
I know I have done wrong but the girls lured me into this act. I am a married man with grown up children but the little girls tempted me and made me do it. The girls have been on my neck because they derive satisfaction in sleeping with me and I had no choice but to satisfy them. I slept with them several times but when I realised it was wrong I decided to stop doing it. They went to report me to their mothers when I told them to stop coming to my house. The mothers went and reported me to the police . Please they should forgive me, I won’t do this again.”
Despite his claims, should he really be forgiven and allowed to go scot-free?
