The witness said she reported the matter to the police, and investigations were carried out on the defendant and the victim to unravel the truth.

She said that in the presence of her husband’s lawyer, the Divisional Police Officer who happened to be his patient said she takes her two children to the defendant’s hospital.

According to the witness, “She faced him, and said what do you have to say to what your wife has said “He broke down in tears that he was having carnal knowledge of her.”

“He admitted to fingering her and having oral sex with her.”

She said Police Inspector Esther told her that the victim was not lying about the incidence.

She claimed that her own child also told her that she had seen her husband undress the minor sometime.

According to her, “She didn’t want me to be sad.

“There was no time since November 2021 that Femi had denied the allegations, he has spoken to me about apologising to the whole family and the victim, stating it was the work of the Devil.

She, however, noted that her husband checked himself into a rehabilitation home; Grace Cottage Clinics in Ilupeju.

She said, “The psychologist at the rehabilitation centre reached out to me that he had a diagnosis of sex addiction that I should go back to history that if not, my own daughter can be a victim and that I should cooperate with them.

The witness added, “I slept through all his atrocities, he also gives me Phenegan that it will help reduce my stress.

“My lord, I was raised to be a strong confident woman. Evil is evil, regardless of who is the perpetrator.

“I have a girl child, I have eight nieces, if this is not curb the evil will continue and my conscience and late mother didn’t raise me that way.”
