Police spokesman ASP David Kujabi revealed that the accused was a former convict and is not just accused of committing incest and impregnating his daughter but of killing and burying the corpse of the baby. Mr Faye is expected to appear before the court today.
ASP Kujabi explained: “It was the [girl’s] maternal grandfather who reported the matter to the police that Mr Faye impregnated his daughter. The accused was married to the mother of the victim but they divorced and he was imprisoned for committing a crime. When he came out from prison in 2011, he persuaded the girl who was living with her maternal grandparents to go stay with him. During investigations, police found out that the baby was born in December 2013. The accused, Mr Faye, [allegedly] suffocated the baby to death by tightly grabbing its neck and burying it afterwards. During police investigations, the victim told the police that this was not the first time he impregnated her. She said her first pregnancy was aborted. He [Seedy Faye] will be arraigned before the court probably tomorrow.”
The police public relations officer said “there are many more cases of incest and abuse that have not been reported” and urged members of the public to report such cases to the police.
