The suspect, identified as William, who hails from Ile Onisa Quarters, was said to have slept with his daughter, threatening to kill her, if she told anybody about the incest.

This is a question the people of Emure Ekiti, headquarters of Emure Local Government Area in Ekiti State are still looking for an answer. WHY could a 50-year-old father murdered his daughter after impregnating the 14-year-old girl?

Sources in Emure told reporters yesterday that the mother of the girl had separated from the suspect, following irreconcilable differences. The protruding belly of the deceased was said to have turned William to an object of ridicule in the community as locals said the late girl was never known to have any boyfriend in her lifetime nor was she promiscuous.

She was said to be responsible for cooking for her father and taking care of the home following the departure of the mother. The mother was said to have left with the younger siblings and the deceased remained with her father.
