LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- A nine-year-old girl has narrated how she was raped by her 42-year-old father, Micheal Chinedu, in Akure, Ondo State.
The victim, in an interview at the office of the Ondo state security outfit, Amotekun, said that the suspect sent her on an errand and when she returned, locked her up in the room and defiled her.
Speaking in the presence of the suspect who was paraded alongside 17 other suspected criminals, the victim, said, “Daddy sent me to go and buy soap, when I came back and handed the soap over to daddy, he refused to collect it and asked me to go drop it on the table inside his room.
“The next thing I noticed was that the door was suddenly closed and I saw Daddy.
”He grabbed me from behind and tied my hand and legs with cloth and stuffed another cloth inside my mouth.
“I struggled with daddy but he removed my pant and defiled me.
In response, the suspect who denied raping the young girl said he did not penetrate but only inserted his finger into her private part.
Vanguard gathered that the sad incident was later reported by the victim’s parents to the state Amotekun.
The Amotekun Commander, Chief Adetunji Adeleye, however, said the suspect will be arraigned before the court after the conclusion of the investigation.
