A 72-year-old year man, Mr. Innocent Madumeye of Ogbe-Ego Quarters, Ubulu Uku in Aniocha Local Goverment Area, Delta State has been arrested by the police for allegedly defiling a seven year-old girl (name withheld) in the same community.
A reliable source revealed to SPADE Online that the mother of the child noticed some unusual behavior from the daughter and became curious to know what exactly happened.
On questioning the child, she revealed to the mother that Madumeye used his fingers on her private part.
The awful revelation by the little girl reportedly threw the mother off balance but she decided to take the child to the General Hospital at Ubulu Uku for medical examination.
SPADE visited the General Hospital and spoke with the Medical Doctor in charge, Dr Patrick Ekeruche who confirmed that the victim was actually brought to the hospital and had been treated of bruises around her private part and discharged.
Meanwhile, the suspect, Madumeye is in the custody of the Divisional Police Station at Ogwashi Uku.
When the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) incharge of the Division, CSP A Oyas was contacted he declined comment pointing out that he was not in position to speak to the Press except the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) at the Delta State Police Headquarters, Asaba.
As at the time of going to press, the PPRO could not pick calls put across to her for comment.
