A 30-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly defiling a one-year-old baby.
A 30-old man, Blessing Augustine, has been arrested after he allegedly used his fingers to defile a one-year-old baby girl.
The Kogi State born Augustine reportedly committed the sacrilege at his Lugbe Zone 4, Abuja, residence where he resides with the parents of the girl.
Reports have that while pretending to play with the girl, Augustine allegedly poked his finger into the baby girl’s genital and in the process, broke her hymen.
The shameful act came to light when the mother of the girl noticed caked blood on her private parts while giving her a bath and reported to her husband who asked her who else had carried the baby apart from her, and it turned out that their neighbour had carried her earlier in the day.
The father, Nnamdi Chukwu, reported the case to the police and Augustine was arrested after which the baby was taken to Gwarimpa General Hospital and Amaco Hospital, a private health facility, where doctors in both places confirmed that she had been defiled.
