The Anambra State Command of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has confirmed the arrest of a 48-year-old man identified as Thomas Igbo for allegedly defiling his 3 daughters.


The arrest of the suspect who hails from Igbo from Ikolo, Igbo-Etiti Local Government Area of Enugu State was confirmed by the State Commandant, NSCDC, Mr David Billie said the investigation is ongoing.


According to Billie in a statement, the suspect will be charged to Court immediately the Judiciary Staff Union of Nigeria (JUSUN) ends its strike and the court resumes full activities.


Narrating how the abuse was discovered, Mrs Okwuchukwu Chukwuenyem, the Spokesperson for Child Protection Network, said the case was brought to their notice after a neighbor noticed the behavior of the man.


According to her, the man was in the habit of taking the children separately on a daily basis, mostly between 9pm and 10:30pm but what made the neighbor suspicious was when he was allegedly heard asking the children in Pidgin English, “e sweet” to the neighbor’s hearing.
