A 24-year-old man has impregnated his elder
sister, 25, in Ajegunle area of Lagos State.
LEADERSHIP learnt that their father popularly
known as Papa Akpan is a steward in Ikoyi area
while his wife, Mama Akpan is a staff of a private
company in Apapa where she works as a cleaner.
Sources said the parents usually leave their
children, Akpan and Ime alone in their one-room
apartment when going to work and the siblings are
said to be fond of each other but nobody suspected
an amorous relationship between them.
LEADERSHIP gathered that when their mother
suspected that Ime was pregnant, she asked her
but she denied one month later, it became obvious
that Ime was pregnant and the woman had to tell
her husband about the situation.
Last Friday, at about 4am, Papa Akpan was said to
have woken Ime, her mother and Akpan up to
discuss the issue and had pulled out a machete
and threatened to cut Ime down if she failed to say
who was responsible for her pregnancy.
A neighbour said as the atmosphere in the room
became charged, Akpan ran out and it was at this
point that Ime who was by this time weeping
profusely, told her parents that her younger
brother was responsible for the pregnancy.
