49-year-old man arrested for allegedly defiling 10-year-old girl in Delta
A forty-nine-year-old man, Jonah Agbenor has been arrested by the police for allegedly defiling a ten-year-old girl at Ekrokpe Community in Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta State.
The suspect’s arrest was made possible by the Committee for the Defence of Human Right, CDHR, Orhunwhorhun/Usieffurun Unit who followed up on the matter.
It was gathered that over fifteen pastors prevailed on the CDHR not to take up the matter and press charges against the suspect but to let God be the judge.
The State Secretary of the Committee for the Defence of Human Right, Comrade Israel Joe insisted and asked, “Did Jonah Agbenor realize that God would judge when he was every day sexually abusing the little girl with threats that if she speaks out, she would die?
Comrade Joe urged the Divisional Police Officer, DPO never to compromise on the investigation.
He stressed that “We are no longer comfortable with his plea for peace. It is a criminal offence and should be transferred to the State Headquarters for further investigations and prosecution.
“Being a pastor does not keep one immune from issues of criminal prosecution.”
The Delta State Police Command led by CP Ari Muhammed Ali confirmed the report through the Acting Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bright Edafe.
Edafe said, “the incident is confirmed but it is you that told me that the man is a pastor. We don’t have information that he is a pastor.
“As far as our investigation is concerned, he is not a pastor. So, I don’t have any information whether he is a pastor.”
