Man ‘Defiles’ Nine-Year Old Daughter In Anambra

A 40-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly defiling his nine-year-old daughter in Akama village, Igbo-ukwu in Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State.

The suspect, in Police custody at State Criminal and Investigation Department (CID), Awka, however denied the allegations, insisting it was the handiwork of his enemies.

“I didn’t have any carnal knowledge of my daughter. It is my enemies at work because they are envious of me. I only feed her and nothing more,” he claimed.
