The Enugu command of the Nigeria Police force has declared one Ifeanyi Ukwuani wanted for allegedly defiling a minor.
In a press statement signed by the command’s PRO, ASP Daniel Ndukwe, the police said the ugly incident took place at Egede, in Udi LGA, of the state.
The statement also said that the little girl is living with the aged mother of the culprit in the village.
The statement reads;
“Sequel to a report on the defilement of a 10-year old girl at Egede Community of Udi Local Government Area received at 9th Mile Police Division of the Enugu State Police Command on 9th March 2020, the Commissioner of Police of the Command, CP Ahmad Abdurrahman, has directed that a full-scale investigation be carried out to arrest and prosecute the suspect.
“The Commissioner of Police further ordered the transfer of the case to the State CID for discreet investigation that will lead to bringing the fleeing suspect to book, so that it will serve as a deterrent to those hell-bent on committing such callous and mindless offences in the State.
“Meanwhile, preliminary investigation has linked the perpetrator of this ugly act to one Ifeanyi Ukwuani, the son of an old woman whom the victim lives with as a house help at the said Egede Community. The investigation further reveals that the said suspect had left his wife and children in Enugu Metropolis and gone to his mothers house on the said date and place to perpetrate the offence and thereafter, fled to an unknown destination.
“Consequently, the Command has declared Ifeanyi Ukwuani wanted in relation to the said alleged case of defilement and is calling on all and sundry, particularly security stakeholders and partners as well as the good citizens of Enugu State to provide it with credible information that will lead to the arrest and prosecution of the suspect. Such information should be reported at the nearest Police Station or by calling the Command on 08032003702, 08075390882 or 08086671202.
