Police Gives Update On Defilement And Indecent Assault Of 4yr Old Child In Delta
Delta State Police Command has given an update on the owner of a nursery and primary school who defiled a four-year-old girl.
A statement on Friday, 20th October 2023 signed by the Delta State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Edafe Bright, said that the Command is aware of a viral publication posted on various social media handles on the alleged defilement of a 4yr old child (Name withheld) by one Innocent Ezeukwu aged 46yrs, the proprietor of the Great Leader International school where the child is schooling.
Edafe said for clarity and for members of the public not to be misinformed, the Command wishes to state as follows;
“On 5th October 2023 at about 1700hrs, one Mrs. Joy Chukwudi reported that while she was bathing her 4-year-old daughter, she discovered a blood stain in the private part of her daughter. Upon questioning, her daughter kept stating that “Her Uncle Used School Scissors To Cut Her On Her Private Part”. Upon receipt of this complaint, the Area commander Agbor detailed a team of investigators to proceed to the scene of the alleged crime.
“The suspect Innocent Ezeukwu who doubles as the owner of the school and also the only male teacher in the school was arrested and taken into custody. Preliminary investigation led to the issuance of a medical report, and the initiation of an identification parade exercise where the suspect, Innocent Ezeukwu when placed amongst random men, was identified by the victim as the person who allegedly defiled her. The medical report affirmed that there was “no hymen visualized” in the victim’s private part.
“Though the Area Command Agbor had concluded their investigation and charged the case to court, the Commissioner of Police Delta State CP Wale Abass directed the case be withdrawn from the court and immediately transferred to the State Criminal and Investigation Department (SCID) for further meticulously executed investigation.
He said that the CP assured members of the public and the victim’s family that justice will be served as he further appealed that the public remained calm while the investigation is ongoing.
