An Owerri magistrate court has ordered the remand of 39-year-old Okechukwu Nwanguma, who is an official of the Nigerian Security Civil Defense Corp to prison for raping a seven-year-old minor.
The Eastern Updates gathered that crime was allegedly committed in the Nwangele Local Government Area of Imo State.
The family court had ordered the remands following the matter filed by the Imo State Committee on Ending Violence Against Women and Girls (ISCEVAWG).
Nwanguma, who hailed from Abba in Nwangele local government area had become friends with the minor’s brother aged about ten years who he always encouraged to visit him in the company of his sister.
According to him, upon arrival to his apartment, he (Nwanguma) always sent the lad to go buy him bread alone while he raped the sister.
Soon, the girl developed urine incontinence and was unable to hold urine. It was during medical tests that it was realised the seven years old girl had been severally raped which resulted in the complication.
Nwanguma did not deny the allegation which he blamed on the devil.
