The Delta State police command has arrested a 40-year-old man identified simply as Mudiaga for allegedly defiling a three-year-old baby (names withheld).
The suspect, who is now behind bars, was reportedly on the run since the day of the incident, especially when it was reported to the Police before he was eventually arrested.
The child’s mother, speaking on the issue, said her baby would not stop crying and when she tried to bath the child she noticed the child’s vagina was battered.
She immediately rushed her to the Delta Hospital Management Board where the child was examined and admitted until yesterday, Friday, August 2. The hospital also confirmed that the child had been defiled.
According to the medical report, “There were attempts but because of the age, it couldn’t penetrate, thereby causing serious injury.”
