A father of three children has been nabbed in Ebonyi State for allegedly defiling nine children at different times.
Chinedu Nwoja, a middle-aged father of three from Onueke, Ezza South Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, is in serious trouble with the police after it emerged that he had serially raped nine children whose ages ranged between six and 10, New Telegraph reports.
It was gathered that Nwoja who lives with the children and their parents in the same compound, had been having carnal knowledge of them for quite some time before his secrets came to light.
One of the victims, a 10-year-old, while narrating her ordeal, said Nwoja has had sex with her about five times and that he usually did that in secluded areas including inside his car. She added that at times she will be in deep sleep when the man would carry her to a corner in the compound and defile her.
“Last time, Uncle Chinedu carried me when I was sleeping in the house and dropped in a bush at the back of our yard and asked me to remove my clothes. When I refused, he tore them off and removed his clothes and slept with me.
He also usually has sex with me inside his car which he used to park at the back of our compound.”
Another victim, also narrated how Nwoja abducted her while she was on an errand for her father in the night, took her to the bush and defiled her.
“When he came to me and said he wants to have sex with me, I started running but he later caught me and took me inside bush.
He immediately removed my pants and started raping me. I shouted but no one heard me because the place was lonely and little bit far from where people stay. After he finished, he used his hanker-chief and cleaned my body.”
Two of the parents of the children, Elizabeth Nweke and Monday Obaji, said they became aware of the development when their children started complaining of pains in their private parts, and when they were asked, they all pointed to the accused and when he was confronted by the community members, he confessed to the acts.
He has been handed over to the police.
