The suspect was paraded alongside fifteen others for different offenses at the Police Command’s headquarters over the weekend.
Speaking to newsmen, Mr. Onuzulike, denied the rape allegations, saying he was accused by the victim’s mother, who happened to be his sister after they had a misunderstanding.
“Benedict said I raped her 7-year old girl, but I didn’t. She’s my blood sister, married in Umudioka.” he said.
“She came to my house after putting to bed and pleaded I should accommodate her.
”I gave her a room in my house. She accused me of molesting the daughter because of the misunderstanding I’m having with her.
“I insisted we must go to the police station the following day so she can undergo test but she ran away with the daughter.
“She later came out with the daughter and invited the police to arrest me, claiming to have carried out the test on the daughter.”
The Police spokesperson, Haruna Mohammed, warned those found engaging in any form of crimes to be ready to face the full wrath of the law.
He insisted that the Command would continue to pursue criminals until they refrained from committing crimes or relocate from the State.
