The Imo State Police Command has arrested a 23-year-old Uchenna Mbahotu for allegedly defiling two minors of the same parents, Chinemerem Akagha, 11 and Nmesoma Akagha, 9 years old respectively.
The victims, aged 11 and nine of the same parents were allegedly raped by the suspect, who was their next door neighbour at Nkwor Orji in Owerri North LGA of the state.
The spokesman of the police in the state, SP Orlando Ikeokwu, said that the suspect was arrested based on a report by one of the victims’ relatives.
He said the complainant stated that the suspect took advantage of the fact that they allow the kids get close to him as next-door neighbours to perpetrate the evil act.
Ikeokwu, however, said medical examination conducted on both children, revealed that it was only the nine-year-old victim that was defiled.
The police spokesman added that the investigation on the case “is at an advanced stage and the suspect will be charged to court at the conclusion of the investigation”.
