The police command in Edo state has apprehended a 63-year-old man identified as Sunday Igbinokhuaihe for allegedly defiling a two-year-old girl.
The suspect who’s a resident of Urhonigbe in Orhionmwon Local Government Area of the state where the victim lives with her parents, allegedly lured her into his room with a loaf of bread and thereafter used his finger to break her hymen while the girl’s mother was in the kitchen making dinner.
The act was reportedly known after the little girl screamed when her mother tried bathing her in that evening.
After narrating how Igbinokhuaihe allegedly used his finger on her private part, the police was involved and later took away the suspect.
Chidi Nwabuzor, Edo police spokesperson, said Igbinokhuaihe has been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department in Benin where he is currently being held in detention pending the conclusion of an investigation. He is expected to appear in court next week.
