The Rivers State Police Command said its operatives have arrested a 42-year-old man simply identified as Kolawale for allegedly defiling his 13-year-old female house help in Ejekwu Street, Eneka in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of the state.

It was gathered that the suspect, a father of three, was nabbed by the human rights desk of the state police on Monday, following a complaint by concerned neighbours whom the teenage girl ran to after the former allegedly defiled her.

A source who pleaded anonymity said that Kolawale is a rig worker and has been sleeping with the girl whenever he was in town unknown to his wife.

“She resisted him, ran out of the compound and informed some residents of what has been going through. So the women amongst them took her in for check and confirmed that there had been penetration in her private part.”

He further said the women were shocked at the level of damage following regular penetration of the minor and peeved by the discovery, they took the girl to the state Ministry of Justice where they lodged a formal complaint.

“So, it was actually the Ministry of Justice that now reported to the human rights desk at the police headquarters at Moscow Road. After receiving the report, the police have been monitoring the man since he was not steady.

“On receiving information that he came back on Sunday, they (police) moved in and arrested him on Monday morning,” the source disclosed

It was also gathered that the result of a medical examination conducted on the teenage girl showed that her private part was penetrated.

When contacted, the spokesperson for the state police command, Grace Iringe-Koko, confirmed the incident, and the arrest of the man, saying investigation was ongoing.

Iringe-Koko, a Superintendent of Police, stated, “Yes, I can confirm the incident. The suspect has been arrested and in our custody. Investigation is ongoing.”
