"We were shocked when my sister mentioned our step-father's name as a biological father of the baby she is carrying," he said.  

Alupo, 18, is now seven month pregnant and has since dropped out of school.

Omoding admitted responsibility for his daughter's pregnancy, but has asked for forgiveness.

"Yes, I am responsible for the pregnancy Alupo is carrying, but forgive me because I didn't know what I was doing. This is Satan's temptations," said Omoding while in police custody.

Omoding's elder brother, James Okol, said the suspect also has several cases including stealing his battery.

Police said they will prefer charges of incest and child abuse against the suspect.
