Man arrested for raping nine year old girl

25 February 2015, 13:19

Abuja - A 32-year-old truck pusher has allegedly been arrested following the rape of a 9-year-old girl, Vanguard reports.

The suspect, Alloysus Ikejimba, has allegedly been arrested for a similar offence in the past and has been described by officials as a serial rapist.

The father of the victim, identified only as Kenny, revealed that Ikejimba had raped his daughter multiple times, allegedly while she was taking a bath at the back of the family home.

After Kennedy had confronted the man, the suspect fled and was not heard of until two weeks later when he brought officials to Kennedy's home alleging that the man had threatened his life.

After arriving at the police station and informing officers of what Ikejimba had done, a medical test was performed on the minor, proving that she had indeed been defiled by the man.

The suspect has denied all accusations put against him.
