Photos: 40-yr-old blames wife for defiling his 9-year-old step-daughter in Rivers

A Rivers state resident has blamed his wife after he was arrested and detained by the police for defiling his 9-year-old step-daughter.

According to activist, Harrison Gwamnishu who effected the arrest, he said the suspect who resides in Igwuruta, began to sexually assault his stepdaughter after the mother of the victim denied him sex repeatedly.

The suspect’s evil act was allegedly covered up by his wife who knew about it and decided to save her marriage instead of her daughter.

Got tagged on a Facebook post by Tobore Anne calling my attention on a child defilement case in Rivers State.

Yesterday at 6:00pm i left Asaba to Portharcourt and alerted our Rivers BBI team.

At 11:20am, we reported to Nigeria Police human right desk of Igwuruta Divisional Police Station. In company of a female Police officer, we tracked down the suspect and arrested him.

He confessed using his fingers??to penetrate and also inserted his manhood.

The wife who raised the alarm tried to cover up her husband, but they both later accepted and pleaded we forgive them.

We will be taking the victim to the hospital tomorrow and provide all necessary support before charging suspect to court.
