The Anambra State government on Thursday said the police arrested a 75-year-old barber, Nwankwo Nweke, for raping an eight-year-old girl in Awka.

The Commissioner for Women and Social Welfare, Ify Obinabo told journalists in Awka that the arrest followed a report by the girl’s parents to the ministry.

Ms Obinabo said: “I want to assure you that justice will be served on this matter.”

The father of the girl, John Ugwuanyi, explained that the girl was sent to buy provisions at a nearby shop when the suspect, who is a neighbour, lured her into his room.

Mr Ugwuanyi said: “When she came back, we noticed the items she had bought were not complete and asked her to go back to the shop. We started looking for her when she did not return on time.

“We went to the shop but did not see her there. That was when we started screaming her name in the neighbourhood. After few hours, some persons told us she was pushed out from our neighbour’s room.”

Mr Ugwuanyi added: “We asked her what happened and she told us the suspect took her to his room to give her mango and also told her not to answer when we were calling out her name.

“At that point, we had to report the case to the ministry and the police, after which my daughter was taken to the hospital where it was confirmed that the man defiled her.”
