He added that his wife reported him to FEYrep- Family Empowerment Youths reorientation programme, a pet project of the wife of the governor, Dr. Mrs Martha Emmanuel.
“I don’t know what came over me, that night on returning from a vigil, I took ogogoro (gin), and I didn’t know what happened afterwards. I carried my wife’s daughter and I began to have sex with her,” he said.
“As I was having sex with her my wife stepped into the room and caught me in the act, she subsequently reported me FEYrep. I have begged her but she refused. We only had a baby together three months ago,” he added.
Odiko Macdon, the state Police Public Relations Officer, said Iniobong forcefully defiled the two-year-old while carrying her on his laps.
