A teenager from Amaechara Agbo village, Afikpo in Afikpo North Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, has been remanded in prison by an Abakaliki Magistrate’s Court for defiling three female children of his boss – aged between five and eight years.
The suspect, Ndubuisi Utom, who is a domestic staff of one Chukwuemeka Aja, was at the weekend arrested for having carnal knowledge of Aja’s three daughters.
It was gathered that the accused committed the crime by inserting his fingers into the private parts of the victims who are between ages of five and eight, causing them severe pains.
A source close to the family told newsmen that it was the screams of the 3 minors as a result of the pain inflicted that attracted the attention of their mother, who was cooking in the kitchen when the incident occurred.
“The woman was very angry seeing her children in pains and unable to walk. She quickly contacted her husband. Utom was arrested and handed over to the Afikpo North Divisional police to prevent the youth who were very angry from lynching him.
“The victims have been taken to the hospital for treatment,’’ the source said.
Speaking on the incident, the state Police Public Relations Officer, George Okafor, warned parents and guardians to be mindful of their children’s movements and who they associated with.
