Ndubuisi Utom, a middle-aged man in Amaechara Agbo village, Afikpo in Afikpo North Local Government Area of Ebonyi State, was at the weekend arrested for having carnal knowledge of his master’s three daughters.
Utom who is a domestic staff of one Chukwuemeka Aja, allegedly inserted his fingers into the private parts of the victims, who are between ages of five and eight, causing them severe pains.
According to a source close to the family who spoke with Vanguard, it was the screams of the victims that attracted their mother, who was cooking in the kitchen when the incident occurred.
The source said: “The woman quickly contacted her husband and Utom was immediately handed over to policemen at Afikpo North Divisional Police to prevent angry youths, who had gathered, from lynching him.”
Reacting to the incident, the state Police Public Relations Officer, George Okafor, warned parents and guardians to be mindful of their children’s movements and who they associated with.
