The police have given an update on the 4-year-old pupil whose hymen was cut with scissors while she was at school in Agbor, Delta State.
Recall that Innocent Ezeukwu, the Proprietor of Great Leaders International School, was arrested for the alleged sexual assault of a 4-year-old pupil at his school.
In a statement released today, Oct. 20, DSP Edafe Bright, the PRO of the Delta State Police Command, explained that the victim had told her mother at home that her “uncle at school” used scissors to cut her private part.
The proprietor was arrested since he is the only male figure in the school.
The suspect was then placed in a line-up of other men and the victim pointed at him as the person who defiled her.
A medical check was done and the medical report affirmed that there was “no hymen visualized” in the victim’s private part.
The police statement added, “Though the Area Command Agbor had concluded their investigation and charged the case to court, there was a counter directive from the Commissioner of Police who instructed that the case be withdrawn from the court and immediately transferred to the State Criminal and Investigation Department (SCID) for further meticulously executed investigation.”
DSP Edafe Bright said: “The Police Commissioner of Delta State, CP Wale Abass assures members of the public and the victim’s family that justice will be served; he further appeals that the public remains calm while the investigation is ongoing.”
