42-year-old man claims he paid parents to have sex with their 13-year-old daughter before getting her pregnant
A man was arrested after he impregnated a young teenager.
Police in Lagos, Nigeria, arrested 42-year-old Lucky Emmanuel, after he admitted to having sex and impregnating the junior high school student.
The arrest came after the school learned that the 13-year-old girl was pregnant, and they questioned her about the identity of the father of the child.
After school officials learned that Emmanuel lured her to his home while she was selling fruits in his neighborhood and he raped her, they called police.
Emmanuel, who works as a tailor, claims that he was dating the girl for the past several months with the permission of her parents.
Emmanuel said that after his wife divorced him and left with their two children, he paid the girl’s parents N80,000 (about $246) to marry her.
The 42-year-old man admitted to having sex with her three times before she became pregnant while they were “dating.”
However, he claims that the girl is 15-years-old not 13 as police said.
The girl’s parents denied knowing that Emmanuel was in a relationship with their daughter. Police commissioner Fatai Owoseni said that they are investigating the case.
