A man simply identified as Tele Egbegi has been alleged to have raped his ten-year old daughter (Name withheld) to death in Okugbene Community, Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State, DAILY POST reports.
DAILY POST gathered that the girl died on Tuesday at about 8pm and she is still lying in state in her father’s compound waiting for the arrival of the mother’s family from Ayakoromo community.
Meanwhile, her father, Tele Egbegi has fled the community for fear of being mobbed.
The matter came to the public domain when local doctors who administered treatment on the deceased who recently fell seriously sick confirmed that she was being molested and that someone bigger than her was having canal knowledge of her.
It was gathered that the girl allegedly accused an innocent person for molesting her because her father threatened her not to mention his name, but later confessed that it was her father who had been having carnal knowledge of her as well as molesting her by having sex with her through the anus and her private part for about four times.
The Egbegi family is the only family that is resident in the small community.
A source told DAILY POST that Egbegi’s late wife (mother of the deceased) may have died due to the beatings she gave her while she was alive.
The source also added that Egbegi who is known for his notoriety had in December 2013 allegedly set ablaze the house of his brother’s wife and children at night.
