Woman Catches Lover Defiling 15-Month-Old Daughter In Yenagoa
A woman, Blessing Joshua, has handed her lover, Oku Ekanem, to the police in Bayelsa State, after she caught him defiling her 15-month-old daughter.
The incident, which happened around 1 am on Monday in Swali, Yenogoa, caused outrage among residents of the area.
The 50-year-old suspect was caught in the act and subsequently apprehended by men of Operation Doo Akpo in the community.
Joshua, 40, told the police that she had just returned from a neighbour’s apartment when she witnessed the scene.
“It was not quite long, I heard the scream of my child and ran to where the cry was coming from. But I was shocked when I saw him (Ekanem) defiling my child.
“He claimed it was the work of the devil and I told him that this would be last time the devil would use him and that I would take the matter seriously. He pleaded and closed the door to prevent me from calling neighbours. But I tricked him and ran outside with my child to call police patrol team at our junction,” she narrated.
The mother further said that a test carried out on the child revealed she was defiled.
Dise Ogbise Erhisere, Chaiperson, International Federation of Female Lawyers, FIDA, confirmed the incident. She described it as “barbaric and wicked act to impede the healthy development of the child.”
”It is barbaric and inhuman. We condemn it and call on mothers to be vigilant and careful with their girl child,” she said.
