One Bassey Archibong, 64, is said to have defended his regular sex with his four daughters with the story of Lot in the Bible.
The man, a resident of Ikorodu, a Lagos suburb, reportedly has sex with his daughters, aged between 12 and 20.
It was learnt that he had been having incestuous sexual relationship with the girls since 2016.
He was arraigned on three counts of continuous sexual relationship with his daughters, failure to get their consent and involvement in amoral relationship with the victims before the Ikorodu Magistrates’ Court 1, Lagos.
“The defendant beat the children and starved them whenever they confronted him on why he was sleeping with them.
“He would tell them that intercourse between fathers and daughters were normal and approved by God.
“He told the children that God did not punish Lot, who had sexual intercourse with his children, meaning that He approves of the act,” John Iberedem, the prosecutor, was quoted to have said.
The defendant pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The Chief Magistrate, F. A. Azeez, remanded the accused person in a correctional facility pending advice by the Director of Public Prosecutions.
She adjourned the matter till October 30, 2019.
