A middle-aged man has been arrested after being accused of sexually abusing his neighbour’s young daughter.
The event reportedly occurred on Thursday at Ejekwu Street, Wike Rumuepirikom District of Port Harcourt, Rivers State, according to one Amb Samuel Hope Ezemuri.
The suspect allegedly used biscuits to lure the girl away from other children in the compound. However, a neighbour who claimed she saw the suspect taking the kid to his room raised the alarm, drawing the girl’s mother and other neighbours’ attention.
They reportedly dashed into the suspect’s room, where they discovered him naked with the young girl he had undressed.
The victim was reportedly saved, and the suspect turned over to the police at Rumuepirikom.
