A court gave a father three life sentences after being found guilty of forcing his way with his biological daughters.

Michake Ogbar was given a sentence on Thursday, July 14 by Justice Abiola Soladoye of Nigeria’s Ikeja Domestic Violence and Sexual Offenses Court, who called his actions a “disgrace to fatherhood.”

The convict was arrested and prosecuted for defiling his 10-year-old daughter and then raping another two, aged 20 and 24.

The charges of defilement and rape against Ogbar were proven beyond a reasonable doubt by the prosecution team, the court determined, according to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), leading to his conviction and punishment.

“Evidence before the court shows that the prosecution has proved the case of defilement and rape before this court.

“The defendant, who is the father of the three daughters, is found guilty as charged, as the burden of proof has been discharged.

“This is a very sad case,” the court ruled, as read by Justice Abiola Soladoye.

Ogbar allegedly exploited his girls for years while his wife was away before his day of judgment arrived.

“The defendant ravished his own daughters in turn, committing incest. It is rather shameful and most perverted.

“The defendant is hereby found guilty and sentenced to life imprisonment on count one.

“On count two, he is sentenced to life imprisonment and on count three, he is also sentenced to life imprisonment,” the judge held, as quoted by NAN.

The Lagos State Government, which brought charges against Ogbar, said that his actions were against Sections 137 and 258(1) of the Lagos State Criminal Law of 2015.

Six witnesses were called by the prosecution side to testify against the defendant throughout the trial.

The court also mandated that Ogbar’s name be added to the register of sexual offenders for Lagos State.

However, the three life sentences will be served simultaneously.
