A painter identified as Mr. Anointing, has been arrested for sexually abusing an 11yr-old girl in Ezza North local government area of Ebonyi State. According to reports, the suspect usually sends the primary 5 pupil, Onyinye Uche, on errands and would demand that she brings whatever she bought for him into his room as he kept planning to hatch his evil plan.

Onyinye narrated her ordeal when she was interviewed by the Special Assistant to Ebonyi State Governor on Security and Utility (Capital City), Saint Nchekube Anakor. She said that the suspect who is a Painter resides in the same compound (close to the Federal High Court) with them. She added that she always runs errands for the suspect.

According to her,

Yesterday wasn’t the first time Mr. Anointing had abused her s.e.x.ually as it has happened on many occasions.

“He will always send me to buy something for him, and when I come back, he will tell me to bring it to his room. Each time l entered his room, he will be touching my breasts and be inserting his fingers into my vagina. I don’t like what he does to me and I don’t know how to tell my parents”, she stated

SA on Security, Mr. Anakor, said he got a tip off of the incident from one Tochuckwu Nwankwegu, and some others from disco two at about 3:30 am of Wednesday July 5, 2020. He said on getting to the compound, he discovered that the suspect had been caught by neighbours when he was abusing the girl as they raised alarm.

He said,

“Thanks to Tochukwu Nwankwegu and others from Disco 12. It was like a joke at exactly 3:30am last night, until little Onyinye Uche, an 11year old girl from Ezza North Local Government Area, who lives near Federal High Court Abakaliki, opened up on how one Mr Anointing, a Painter who also lives in the same building normally took her to his room and sexually abused her”.

He said that the suspect who refused to say anything at the scene of incident was taken to Kprirkpiri Police Station Abakaliki, where he was detained by the Police.
