The spokesperson of the Enugu state police command, Assistant Superintendent of Police, Daniel Ndukwe, has confirmed the arrest and investigation of two brothers, Chima and Michael Nnamani that allegedly defiled a nine-year-old girl from Akpawfu community in Nkanu East Local Government Area of Enugu State.
According to him, “the case-file and suspects involved in the case of an alleged defilement of a nine-year-old have all been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Enugu, for conclusive investigation.”
As Linda Ikeji stated, the Founder of Women Aid Collective, Prof. Joy Ezeilo, reported the case to the police. According to her: “On November 28, 2021, WACOL received a case of defilement of a nine-year-old girl by two brothers from the same biological parents, Chima Nnamani and Michael Nnamani, from Akpawfu community.
“The accused persons had been allegedly arrested for serially violating a nine-year-old relative living with them. While narrating her ordeal in the hands of these perpetrators, the victim mentioned how this heinous act perpetrated against her body started immediately when she arrived to live with them in their place of abode and had continued daily especially in the morning hours.
“The victim added that she had complained to her aunty, Mrs Theresa Nnamani, who happened to be her father’s stepsister about the wicked act but she remained adamant because these perpetrators were her biological sons.
“She said that her aunty had returned home unexpectedly in one of the fateful days and witnessed the incident where her sons were sexually abusing her yet she did nothing to end the sexual abuses.
“The child was brought to WACOL by Good Samaritans who disclosed that the child complained of severe pains, and when they probed further she confided in them about her ordeal in her aunty’s house.”
