Bouncer in jail over sexual assault of 13-year-old girl in Rivers

By Suoyo Ekubo 

A bouncer at a nightclub in Port Harcourt has been arrested for allegedly defiling a 13-year-old girl at his residence on Ojike Street, Mile 1 Diobu Port Harcourt.

According to the Punch, a source in the area said the bouncer, identified as one Obidiah, sent the minor to buy him a recharge card for his mobile phone, adding that when the victim returned, the bouncer told her to bring the recharge card into the room.

“Immediately she entered the room and gave the recharge card to Obidiah, he locked the door, increased the volume of his radio set and that was how he had carnal knowledge of her,” the source said.

Explaining further, the source said a co-tenant, upon realising that the minor took time before coming out of the room, questioned her.

The source said, “So, the girl now narrated to the co-tenant of the suspect what transpired and he, in turn, alerted the Mile 1 Police Division. So policemen came and arrested him on Sunday.

Contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Grace Iringe-Koko while confirming the incident, said the suspect had been arrested, adding that a preliminary investigation by the police showed that the suspect penetrated the girl.

“The command is aware of the incident, and the suspect has been arrested as we speak. The matter has been transferred from the Mile 1 Police Division to the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department in Port Harcourt for discreet investigation,” the PPRO said.
