Eziama Police Division, Aba, Abia State has arrested a 41-year-old man, Stephen Akunewu, for allegedly raping a 3-year-old girl in Aba.
Akunewu, a barbing salon operator at No. 14 Uzoigwe Extension, off Osusu Road, Aba, was alleged to have used biscuits and sweets to lure the innocent minor who is a niece to his neighbour, into his trap and took advantage of her.
It was learned that a medical examination carried out on the minor showed that she was abused by the suspect as her private part was reddish and bruised.
Vanguard gathered that the minor’s guardian, identified as Mrs. Eunice, who suspected that her niece had been defiled, reported the matter to the police, while the victim fled his residence to evade police arrest.
