How My Husband Impregnated Our 13-Year-Old Daughter

An embittered mum, Maryam Manta, who filed for divorce after her 40-year-old husband, Hafizu Isyaku, allegedly raped and impregnated their 13-year-old daughter, recounted the shameful episode which forced her to abandon their home in Abuja and relocate to Kaduna with their six children in a writ of summon submitted before the court.

According to Nigerian Tribune, Maryam revealed:

“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 added that her husband however continued having intercourse with their daughter after the abortion, and she later caught him. She continued:

“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.”
