The Anambra State Govt has rescued a 13-year-old girl who recently delivered a baby in the state.
Overtnews gathered that the minor was impregnated by her guardian identified as Mr Sunday.
She was taken into custody by the State Ministry of Women and Children’s Welfare.
Briefing journalists on Monday in Awka, the spokesperson for the ministry, Miss Chidimma Ikeanyionwu, said Sunday, who impregnated the teenager was apprehended on Sunday night by the team from the ministry and handed over to the police.
She told journalists that she was put in the family way by her guardian. Although the minor hails from Akwa Ibom, her biological parents stay in Agulu, Anambra State. She also accused her guardian of having a knack for defiling children.
“Mr Sunday’s wife is known as Madam Ghana. This started when Madam Ghana travelled to the village. I’m not the only one involved. There is another girl who is seven years old, Mr Sunday used to sleep with her too,” she said.
“I once told Madam Ghana about it, and she cautioned her husband, but when it continued, I could not do much any longer.”
The state government vowed to charge the suspect to court soon.
