Ikechukwu Ekenta, a forty-three-year-old man from Ikeduru-Ogwah, Mbaitolu Local Government Area of Imo state, has allegedly raped his daughter, Kamsiyochukwu Ekenta who is three years and ten months old.
It was gathered that the girl was defiled on 28th of April 2020 while her mother was in the labour room.
Narrating her ordeal, little Kamsimyochukwu said her daddy defiled her while she was sleeping, and was woken by a sharp pain.
Speaking at the Professor Dora Akunyili Women Development Centre, Awka, the alleged rapist Mr Ikechukwu Ekenta said that he was pushed by evil spirit to rape his child.
He said whenever the spirit came, he will start behaving abnormally, and that day, he used his finger to defile the girl in response to the urge.
While explaining what she encountered on her return from hospital, the wife of the rapist, Mrs Uzoamaka Ekenta said she noticed that the girl recoiled with pain while bathing her and on enquiry, the little girl told her what her father did.
Mrs Ekenta said she hurriedly asked her husband what happened and he admitted defiling the girl, and on getting to the hospital, it was discovered that he used his penis instead of his hands as he claimed.
She stated that she complained to the parents of her husband but they threatened to deal with her if she dares tell anyone; until the whistle blower came to her aid last Saturday.
The Commissioner for Women and Children Affairs in the state (Anambra), Lady Ndidi Mezue felt so bad with the development. She said that it was an abominable act, condemnable in all ramifications and lamented that the child was still in pains.
Lady Ndidi said that on receiving the information from the whistle blower, they rushed to the residence of the rapist at 33 Area, near Onitsha and apprehended him with the help of men of security personnel. The commissioner said the rapist, Ikechukwu Etenta will face the full weight of the law.
