A 40-year-old man has been apprehended in Rivers state for allegedly raping his 9-year-old stepdaughter.
According to a report by activist Harrison Gwamnishu, the suspect who resides in Igwuruta, claims he began to sexually assault his stepdaughter after his wife, the mother of the victim denied him sex repeatedly.
It was however revealed that the wife knew about the rape incident all the while, but decided to keep quiet to save her marriage.
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.
