Delta Chief Arrested For Defiling Teenage Neighbour

A community chief in Delta State simply identified as Oshiji has been arrested by men of the state police command for allegedly defiling a 14-year-old girl.

He is said to be currently in the custody of the Umutu Police Division for allegedly defiling the girl in the Ukwuani Local Government Area of the state.

PUNCH Metro gathered on Thursday that the suspect had been defiling the teenager repeatedly.

A source in the community who spoke on condition of anonymity said the victim, a JSS1 pupil was lured with N50 for the third time into an uncompleted building.

He said, “The chief has four wives and many children. From the girl’s statement, the chief has allegedly raped her twice.

“Chief Oshiji lives close to the girl’s family house and has been taking advantage of the girl. He has been raping her in an uncompleted building.

“She said the chief threatened to kill her if she tells anybody but the third attempt was what exposed him after he allegedly forced her to take drugs.”

The victim was said to be bleeding excessively before she confessed to her mother, leading to the suspect’s arrest.

When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bright Edafe, confirmed the arrest on Thursday.

 “Yes, he has been arrested and he is currently in the custody of police and the investigation is ongoing,” Edafe said.
