A 46-year-old male proprietor of a private school in Agbor, Delta State has been paraded by the State police command for allegedly defiling a 4-year-old female pupil of the school.
According to a statement by the Public relations officer of the command, DSP Bright Edafe, the victim told to her mother that she was defiled by the proprietor in school.
The statement said the little girl was able to identify the suspect as the person who allegedly defiled him when the command initiated an identification parade exercise where the suspect was placed amongst random men.
The statement further read, ”At about 1700hrs, one Mrs Joy reported that while she was bathing her 4-year-old daughter, she discovered a blood stain in the private part of her daughter. Upon questioning, her daughter kept stating that “ her uncle used school scissors to cut her on her private part”
“Upon receipt of this complaint, the Area commander Agbor detailed a team of investigators to proceed to the scene of the alleged crime.
“The suspect who doubles as the owner of the school and also the only male teacher in the school was arrested and taken into custody. Preliminary investigation led to the issuance of a medical report, and the initiation of an identification parade exercise where the suspect, when placed amongst random men, was identified by the victim as the person who allegedly defiled her. The medical report affirmed that there was “no hymen visualized” in the victim’s private part.
“Though the Area Command Agbor had concluded their investigation and charged the case to court, the Commissioner of Police Delta State CP Wale Abass directed the case be withdrawn from the court and immediately transferred to the State Criminal and Investigation Department (SCID) for further meticulously executed investigation.”
