  Enugu State Police PRO, ASP Daniel Ndukwe, confirmed the incident, saying that, “case-file and suspects involved in the case of alleged defilement of a nine-year-old have all been transferred to State Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Enugu, for conclusive investigation”.

While reacting to the incidence, Executive Director and founder, Women Aid Collective (WACOL), Prof. Joy Ezeilo, called for the immediate prosecution of the two suspects arrested for allegedly defiling the minor in community in Enugu.

  The statement read in part: “On Nov. 28, 2021, WACOL received a case of defilement of a nine-year-old girl by two brothers from the same biological parents, Chima Nnamani and Michael Nnamani,  from Akpawfu community.

 “The accused persons had been allegedly arrested for serially violating  a nine-year-old relative living with them.

 “While narrating her ordeal in the hands of these perpetrators, the victim mentioned how this heinous act perpetrated against her body started immediately when she arrived to live with them in their place of abode and had continued on a daily basis especially in the morning hours.

“She stated that she often bled profusely afterwards, yet no one offered her any help or treatment.

  “The victim added that she had complained to her aunt, Mrs Theresa Nnamani  severally who happened to be her father’s step sister about the wicked act but she remained adamant because these perpetrators were her biological sons.

 “She added that her aunt had returned home unexpectedly in one of the fateful days and witnessed the incident where her sons were sexually abusing her, yet, she did nothing to end the sexual abuses.

  “The child was brought to WACOL by a good Samaritan who disclosed that the child complained of severe pains, and when they probed further, she confided in them about her ordeal in her aunt’s house.

  “Following the report, WACOL has petitioned the Nigerian Police (MTD), Garki, Awkunanaw, in Enugu, which led to the arrest of Michael Nnamani and his brother, Chima Nnamani, who is a student of  University of Uyo.

“WACOL, therefore, urges the Nigerian Police to expedite action on the matter by charging the case to court as required under the Criminal Law of Enugu State and the Violence Against Persons Prohibition Law (VAPPL 2015) of Enugu State.”
