A 40-year-old man arrested for desecrating nine-year-old step-daughter in Rivers, blames his wife
A resident of Rivers State was arrested and detained by the police for desecrating his 9-year-old daughter-in-law.
Harrison Gwamnishu, who made the arrest, was quoted as saying that the suspect, who lives in Igwuruta, had started sexually assaulting his stepdaughter after the victim’s mother repeatedly denied him sex. The evil act of the suspect was concealed by his wife who knew and decided to save his marriage instead of his daughter.
Got tagged on a Facebook post by Tobore Anne calling my attention on a child defilement case in Rivers State.
Yesterday at 6:00pm i left Asaba to Portharcourt and alerted our Rivers BBI team.
At 11:20am, we reported to Nigeria Police human right desk of Igwuruta Divisional Police Station. In company of a female Police officer, we tracked down the suspect and arrested him.
He confessed using his fingers??to penetrate and also inserted his manhood.
The wife who raised the alarm tried to cover up her husband, but they both later accepted and pleaded we forgive them.
We will be taking the victim to the hospital tomorrow and provide all necessary support before charging suspect to court.
