A 70-year-old man, Pa Magnus Okechukwu, has been banished from Utulu in Oru West Local Government Area of Imo State, for three years for allegedly defiling a three year old girl whom he lured into his bedroom.
It was reliably gathered that the randy grandfather, had invited the minor to his apartment to run an errand for him but later took advantage of the little girl’s innocence.
The little girl identified as Chiamaka, went to Pa Okechukwu’s residence at 7pm without knowing that the grandpa would defile her.
Okechukwu, said to be married with children had after satisfying his lust, warned little Chiamaka not to let anyone know about the evil act lest she would be killed.
When the victim returned home, the mother who had been frantically searching for her was shocked when she observed blood coming out from the private parts and therefore raised an alarm.
“When I saw my daughter, her clothes were torn and she was weeping and bleeding at the same time.
I asked her what happened, she said Pa Okechukwu tore her clothes and raped her at that time I raised an alarm to attract passers-by”.
When contacted, the traditional ruler of the community, Eze Sunday Nnabue, declined comments on the matter, stating that he could not discuss such in public.
But Chairman of the community, Ochamaka Anozie, confirmed the incident, saying that the punitive measure was taken to serve as a deterrent to others who may want to indulge in such ungodly act.
