A 40-year-old man has been arrested for allegedly defiling his nine-year-old stepdaughter in Igwuruta, in Ikwerre Local Government Area of Rivers State.

The arrest of the man, whose name could not be ascertained yet, came after a concerned lady raised an alarm on Facebook claiming the mother of the victim was attempting to cover up the case.

According to the lady who raised the alarm, the suspect claimed he started having sex with the girl because her mom was denying him sex.

It was gathered that the wife later got to know about the act, but chose to cover it up in order to save her marriage which prompted people in the neighbourhood to raise an alarm by calling the attention of an activist Harrison Gwamnishu of Behind Bars Initiative (BBI), who later took up the case.
