A septuagenarian, Godwin Agbada, has blamed the devil for the alleged defilement of two girls aged 12 and 14 years in his workshop.
Agbada, who was paraded at the headquarters of the Delta State Police Command in Asaba, yesterday admitted to the offence, but denied having carnal knowledge of another victim, Ebele Olise.
The 74-year-old suspect, who expressed regret over his action, added that both minors often came to his workshop to visit and that he frequently gave them money.
He said he is married with five children.
Asked if he could defend himself before his wife and children following his arrest, Agbada said: ‘Yes, I fit look my children for face. I noh shame, but I noh happy with wetin I do. Na devil make me do am.’
