Woman Catches Lover Raping her Daughter in Bayelsa

A man identified as Oku Ekanem, has been apprehended by the Bayelsa State police command for allegedly defiling a 15-month-old baby.

The incident, which occurred in Swali area of Yenagoa, the state capital has caused outrage among residents, as the 50-year-old Ekanem, was arrested by men of the state’s security outfit, codenamed Operation Doo Akpo.

The suspect, who is said to be a lover to the mother of the child, Blessing Joshua, was allegedly caught red-handed in the act. The mother of the victim said she was shocked when she caught Ekanem defiling her daughter.

“It happened on Monday at about 1 a.m. I was watching the television with my neighbour till late and retired to bed at about 1 a.m. It was not quite long; I heard the scream of my child and ran to where the cry was coming from. But I was shocked when I saw him (Ekanem) defiling my child,” she said.

“He claimed it was the work of the devil and I told him that this would be last time the devil would use him and that I would take the matter seriously. He pleaded and closed the door to prevent me from calling neighbours. But I tricked him and ran outside with my child to call police patrol team at our junction. He was arrested but he denied the act. But a test carried out at the hospital showed that the minor was defiled,” she added.

However, the Bayelsa state Police command is yet to confirm the incident.
