The Police in Otu-Jeremi Divisional Headquarters in Ughelli South Local Government Area of Delta State has arrested a forty-nine-year-old man, Jonah Agbenor for allegedly defiling a ten-year-old girl at Ekrokpe Community.
The suspect’s arrest was made possible by the Committee for the Defence of Human Right, CDHR, Orhunwhorhun/Usieffurun Unit who followed up on the matter.
Over fifteen pastors have been prevailing on the CDHR not to take up the matter and press charges against the suspect but to let God be the judge.
The State Secretary of the Committee for the Defence of Human Right, Comrade Israel Joe insisted and asked, “Did Jonah Agbenor realize that God would judge when he was every day sexually abusing the little girl with threats that if she speaks out, she would die?
Comrade Joe urged the Divisional Police Officer, DPO never to compromise on the investigation.
He stressed that “We are no longer comfortable with his plea for peace. It is a criminal offence and should be transferred to the State Headquarters for further investigations and prosecution.
