A 50-year-old man has been arrested in Delta state for the alleged defilement of a 9-year-old girl.
This shocking revelation was made by Gwamnishu Emefiena Harrison, who is a Human Rights activist in Delta State.
According to Harrison, the suspect lives in the same street with the victim whose name and face will not be published.
He described how the suspect lured the victim into an empty apartment, raped her and then gave her N20.
“A young girl aged 9 was sexually molested by a 50-year old man who lives in the same street with the victim. The victim went on an errand to fetch water for her parents when the man called her and convinced her to follow him into a vacant apartment,” Gwamnishu Emefiena Harrison said.
“On reaching the said apartment, the man pulled the victim’s clothes and also stripped himself naked and threatened to kill the young girl if she screams…
“He dipped his fingers into her vagina severally to create room for expansion, laid on her and inserted his penis and defiled the young girl after which he gave her N20 to get biscuits as a means to pacify her.
“Victim’s mother noticed she was acting strange and on further questioning, she opened up and told her parents how the old man defiled her.
“Behind Bars Human Right Foundation got tipped on the incidence by a member who saw the victim on arrival to the hospital where she was taken for medical care and immediately swung into action.
According to Gwmnishu, the man has been arrested and due to face charges for his atrocious act.
“We arrested the man and handed over to Divisional Police Headquarters Ibusa. He will be charged to court and made to pay for this heinous crime on the minor,” he added.
