A forty-three-year-old man from Ikeduru- Ogwah, Imo State's Mbaitolu Local Government Area, Mr. Ikechukwu Ekenta allegedly raped his three-year-old daughter, Kamsiyochukwu Ekenta.
The baby girl was discovered defiled on April 28th, 2020. While her mother was put to bed.
Narrating his ordeal at the Professor Dora Akunyili Women Development Center, Awka, the alleged rapist Mr. Ikechukwu Ekenta said he was carried away as he said he was pushed to rape his child by an evil spirit.
He said he finds it difficult to stop once the spirit arrives, he used to act abnormally and that very day he defiles the child with his finger when the impulse arrived.
While explaining what she encountered when she returned from the hospital, the rapist 's wife, Mrs. Uzoamaka Ekenta said she noticed her child's severe pain while bathing her and found that her husband had defiled her daughter.
Mrs. Ekenta said she told her husband right away what happened and he realized that he had committed the crime and brought the girl to the hospital where he was it was found out that he used his manhood instead of his hands as he said.
She said she complained to her husband's parents but they threatened to deal with her if she dares to tell anyone until last Saturday the whistleblower came to her aid.
Commissioner For Women And Children Affairs, Lady Ndidi Mezue said it was an abominable act, she felt so bad with the development and also said in all ramifications it is condemnable to lament that the child is still in pains.
Lady Ndidi said that after they got the details from the whistleblower, they hurried to the rapist 's house in the 33rd area outside Onitsha and detained him with the assistance of the men of the Department of State Security Services, stating that he was going to face the maximum weight of the law.
