Abia State Police Command has arrested a 16-years-old boy identified as Paul Ikwecheghi for allegedly killing a 10-year-old girl after having anal sex with her.
Vanguard reports that the 10-year-old girl who hailed from Nkporo, in Ohafia council area, was lured away from her residence at No. 51 Emeonye Street by Ikwecheghi who defiled her.
The anal sex left the little girl paralyzed that she had to be taken to an undisclosed hospital for medical treatment.
She eventually died because the damage done to her anus was too much. However, before her demise, she identified Paul as the culprit – leading to his arrest by the Police.
A resident of the area said, “We discovered Paul took the little girl from her parents’ residence to the place he perpetrated that act.
“I learnt he consumes tramadol. After the incident, the girl became paralyzed and identified Paul as the culprit. The family took her to the hospital while the Police arrested Paul.
“The little girl was wept until she died on Wednesday while receiving medical attention at the hospital. The damage done to her anus was too much. Paul is still with the police and I don’t know if there’s anything going on that case because no one has heard about it.”
The Commissioner of Police, Abia State, Mr Ene Okon who confirmed the incident, explained that the reported of the death of the victim has taken the case from rape to murder. He vowed that Police would ensure that justice is never done on the matter.
“The case was transferred to state CID last week, but if the victim has died as Information is saying, I’ll now intimate the CID that the girl has eventually died and that will turn the case to murder and will be investigated as a murder.
“So, since the information is now that the girl is dead, it will now be treated as murder. Trust us that justice will be done.”
According to her, she obtained a loan of N1.1 million for rice business from Emma, a businessman, with a promise to pay back the money in six months.
However, even before she was given the loan by Emma, she had to pay him with “sex” on three different occasions in a hotel.
