An aggrieved father whose daughter was defiled by a 39-year-old man, was reportedly arrested for chopping the leg of the man who abused his daughter with a machete in Benin, Edo State.
It was gathered the suspect who is now receiving treatment from the hospital after being slashed with a machete, was caught by the dad inserting his finger in his baby’s private part. The dad who revealed that he attacked the suspect out of annoyance and pleaded that charge of defilement filed against the suspect be withdrawn, so that he can also regain his freedom; was arrested for taking laws into his hand.
Sharing the man’s story on Facebook, activist Prince Gwamnishu Harrison wrote;
39 YEAR OLD DEFILE 6 MONTHS OLD BABY, FATHER CUT OFF HIS LEG WITH CUTLASS NOW IN POLICE CUSTODY.
I traveled to Edo State where I facilitated the arrest and detention of two Igbenedion University Students who drugged and raped a female student and still threatened to eliminate her. The students are now in detention.
Another one that shock me is the defilement of 6months old baby by 36 year old man. He was caught in the ACT inserting his finger. The baby’s father cut off his leg with a machete.
The man was arrested for taking laws into his hand charged for ‘Grievous Harm’ and the man that defiled 6 months old baby is receiving treatment at the hospital (Both turned Accused)
BBI was invited to help secure the release of the Baby’s father.The man informed us at the station that he cut off the leg out of annoyance and said he wants to withdraw the charge (Defilement) against the man to regain his freedom.
The Baby’s father wants it 50-50…he wants to be freed and also the man who defiled her 6 months daughter freed from the charges. Are you mad? I asked him….
What should we do?
Secure his release? OR get Justice for the little baby……….BBI is against Jungle Justice. Don’t take laws into your hand… Report to the appropriate Authority.
