NSCDC Arrest Dad For Incest In Anambra


(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Operatives of the the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps NSCDC in Anambra State have arrested and  paraded a 48-year-old man, identified as Thomas Igbo, for allegedly defiling his three daughters.

The suspect who hails from Enugu State but resides in Enugwu-Ukwu, in the Njikoka Local Council Area of Anambra State with his wife and four kids, was  arrested yesterday after he was said to have sexually abused the three female children aged eight years, four years and 18 months.

Igbo, who admitted to abusing his eldest daughter, however, denied molesting the remaining two, blaming his action on alcohol.

It was gathered that one of his daughters revealed the molestation to a neighbour, who reported the matter to a human rights group, Child Protection Network, which facilitated his arrest.

“A hospital in Enugwu-Ukwu confirmed that the three children were severally molested”, the neighbour told newsmen

A spokesperson for the Child Protection Network, Mrs Okwuchukwu Chukwuenyem, said the case was brought to her knowledge after the neighbour noticed the “despicable behaviour” of the man.



According to her, “what made the neighbour raised eyebrows was the day the man asked one of the daughters in Pidgin English, ‘e sweet?’ to the neighbour’s hearing.”

State Commandant of the Corp Mr. David Billie,  who  paraded the suspect, said investigation had begun into the incident.

The Anambra NSCDC boss, disclosed that the suspect,  would  be arraigned when judiciary workers, who were on strike call off their strike.

He however, described the action as painful, appealing to parents to be more responsible in bringing up their God given   children, adding that they are special gifts from God.
