Man, 27, defiles 9-month-old baby


From Patrick Egwu & Ifunanya Ozougwu, Enugu

The Police authority  in Enugu has arrested Mr. Chukwuka Nwanoneyi, a native of Aji in Orlu West of Imo state for allegedly defiling his 8-months old child.

Parading the suspect at the state command headquarters yesterday, the state Commissioner of Police, Mr Emmanuel Ojukwu, said that the man defiled his daughter and would soon face the full weight of the law.

He said: "this is a very bad case. A man and a father defiled and messed up his 9-month- old child and put her in perpetual state of pains. She has been receiving medical treatments and the said man will be made to face justice for what he did. It's abominable"  he lamented.

The suspect, Mr. Nwanoneyi, denied defiling his child but accused his wife, Mrs Chikodili Nwanoneyi for allegedly engaging in illicit affairs.

He said: "this accusation against me defiling my daughter is false, I did nothing like that. What happened was that my wife was having an illicit affair with one man called Caleb Uzoegbuna. I confronted her and we had a misunderstanding about that and she packed her things and traveled to stay with her parents since December last year. Later, she told me that she would be going to the hospital to test the child, when she came back, she told me that the child has malaria and typhoid fever. She later reported the matter to the police and the police called me that I should come to the state CID. When I got there, we went for a lab test and I was told that virginity of the child is intact and the doctors said it's a lie that I didn't defile her. Also, we went to another hospital in Emene and the doctors said that the virginity of the child is still intact. She's just accusing me wrongly, I'm Innocent," he explained.
