Aliyu told the police after his arrest that his action was based on the recommendations of a herbalist, who gave him the assurance that sleeping with his daughter would bring him immense wealth and good luck.
The Katsina State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Gambo Isa, who confirmed the report, said the wife of the accused, Mariya, caught him in the act after repeated complaints from her daughter.
Isa said the accused would remain in custody, while further investigations continued.
