Chinedu Nwoja, a middle aged man, probed by the Ebonyi State Police Command for allegedly defiling seven female children at Onueke in Ezza South local government area of the state. He lives with the children in the same compound.
[dropcap type=”1″]O[/dropcap]ne of the victims, Precious (surname withheld), 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.
Narrating their ordeal, some of the victims aged between six and 10 alleged that the man who was a father of three had on several occasions lured them to his vehicle and other isolated places where he repeatedly carried out the act.
The 10-year-old said at times she will be in deep sleep when the man will carry her to a corner in the
compound and defile her.
Another victim, Amarachi (surname withheld) told New Telegraph that she was sent on an errand in the night by her father when Nwoja approached her and started requesting for sex.
“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.
“Last time, 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,” she said.
He immediately removed my paints and started molesting me. I shouted but no one heard me because the place was lonely and little bit far from where people stay. After, he used his hanker-chief and cleaned my body,” she said.
Some of the parents of the children, Mrs. Elizabeth Nweke and Mr. Monday Obaji said they became aware of the development when their children started complaining of pains in their private parts pointing out that the accused admitted to the offence when confronted by the community members.
The state police command took up the matter following a petition by the Family Law Centre, Abakaliki.
