A man identified as Akarauwa Eke, has been arrested by the Imo State police for allegedly defiling his 10-year-old daughter.
According to a report by Punchng, it was revealed that the victim, who is a primary three pupil at Baptist Nursery and Primary School, Ihiagwa, had been living with her father, along with her siblings, since her mother died in 2013.
Nobody suspected anything until the victim refused to follow her father, who had come to her school to pick her. A resident said the refusal of the child to follow her father home aroused the curiosity of the people around.
In the course of investigation by teachers and villagers, it was discovered that the man had allegedly been defiling her daughter at home.
Two NGOs Virgin Heart Foundation and Women of Divine Destiny Initiatives, an organisation owned by the wife of the governor of the state, are partnering to ensure justice for the girl.
