How Father Defiled Three Underage Daughters In Abia

A man, Chidi Nkire has been arrested for allegedly defiling three of his underage children at their residence in the Obingwa Local Government Area of the state.

The suspect was arrested by members of the Abia State Vigilance Group.

It was learnt that the illicit act reportedly started after Nkire sent the victims’ mother out of their matrimonial home following a disagreement.

The secretary of the vigilance group, Victor Ogidinta, while narrating how the suspect was arrested said members of the vigilance group, on Friday, acted on a tip-off from a concerned citizen about how Nkire had been allegedly defiling his daughters, aged 14, 12 and eight.

Ogidinta explained that on arriving at Nkire’s house in the Obingwa LGA of the state, they realised he had absconded to a neighbouring village but was eventually caught at a hideout in a neighbouring community.

He said, “We got an intelligence report that an individual was perpetrating such an ugly act and we immediately swung into action that day.

“Unfortunately, the man absconded to a neighbouring community, but he was later traced to where he was hiding in Osisioma Ngwa local government.

“He started this activity last year. He had issues with their mum and chased her out of their matrimonial home.

“Following their separation, he forcefully slept with his children. He threatened them, threatened their lives.

“At a point, he starved the children till they agreed to sleep with him.

“The fact is that the man is cooperating. He has not in any way denied any of the acts to date.”
