Rivers State police have arrested a man in Elekahia, Port Harcourt, who allegedly defiled his three children, aged 9 months, 3 years and 5 years.
Prince Wiro, the chairman of the Civil Rights Council, chapter of Rivers State, who reported the incident on Wednesday, September 9, said the perpetrator was arrested following a complaint his wife had received.
The confused mum, speaking to a journalist, said the medical examination performed by the Doctors Without Borders on the children indicated that there was penetration and that their hymens were being tampered with. She also claimed the older girls admitted they had been molested by their father
The defendant was pulled from his home at Boms Street by youth and handed over to the Elekahia police station, it was gathered.
A senior police officer who spoke on anonymity said the case would have been taken directly to court so that if not for the COVID-19 pandemic and the non-admission of new prisoner, the suspect could be left in jail.
