The Anambra State Govt has rescued a 13-year-old girl who recently delivered a baby after she was allegedly impregnated by her guardian, identified as Mr Sunday.
She was taken into custody by the State Ministry of Women and Children’s Welfare, acording to the spokesperson for the ministry, Miss Chidimma Ikeanyionwu, who briefed journalists in Awka.
According to her, Sunday, who impregnated the teenager, was arrested on Sunday night by the team from the ministry and handed over to the police.
She told journalists that although the minor hails from Akwa Ibom, her biological parents stay in Agulu, Anambra State, where she was allegedly defiled by her guardian, who Ikeanyionwu accused of having a knack for defiling children.
“Mr Sunday’s wife is known as Madam Ghana. This started when Madam Ghana travelled to the village. I’m not the only one involved. There is another girl who is seven years old, Mr Sunday used to sleep with her too,” she said.
“I once told Madam Ghana about it, and she cautioned her husband, but when it continued, I could not do much any longer.”
The suspect will be charged to court soon.
