Mr David Bille, the commandant of the corps in the state, told journalists on Thursday in Awka that some civil society personnel on May 25, reported that Igbo was defiling his three underage daughters who are eight, three, and one and half years.
“When we got the report, we arrested one Thomas Igbo, a plumber, residing in Enugwu-Ukwu town in Njikoka area of the state.
“Our medical personnel later conducted a test and uncovered that the children were being abused sexually.
“The suspect confessed to the crime and very soon, we will conclude the investigation and arraign the suspect”, Billie said.
He said that he only had carnal knowledge of the eight-year-old daughter once and used his fingers to penetrate others at different times.
“I had sex once with my eight years old daughter. Others, I only used my fingers to penetrate their private parts when I am bathing them,” he said.
Igbo, from Ikoloani Igboetiti area of Enugu State, claimed that he was under the influence of alcohol the day he slept with the daughter.
Mrs Laura Ugwuanyi, the state Coordinator of the National Human Right Commission, who was at the NSCDC office during the presentation of the suspect, expressed worry over the upsurge in rape cases in the state in recent times.
She advised residents to always report such ills whenever they got to know about them as a way of fighting the menace. (NAN)
