The Anti-human Trafficking, Irregular Migration and other Related Offences Unit, NSCDC National Headquarters, Abuja has arrested a 38-year old man, Tyoughche Emmanuel  who allegedly defiled his 14-year old niece.

The Commandant in charge of the unit, Elor Janet, said the suspect was arrested following a tip off by an NGO, Emerging Genderplus in Abuja.

The suspected paedophile, aged 38 years who hails from Naka Gwe-West, Local Government Area of Benue, was arrested by the NSCDC Female Squad in Anagada at about 5:30 am Friday morning and handed over to human traffic unit, for his consistent sexual assault on his 14 years old niece, Angel (not her real name) who was under his custody.

Narrating the ordeal in the hands of her uncle, the 14 year old said “my uncle Mr Tyoughche Emmanuel, gave me a black substance in a small bottle to drink after which I slept off and the next thing I noticed was my Uncle putting his fingers inside where I use for urinating”

“He did so four times on different occasions and also sucked my breasts during these occasions too and my breasts are paining me.

“Whenever his wife (of the accused) goes out, he will come around me and I always refuse, but he threatened me that he will beat me until I vomit blood, so I was afraid of telling anybody”.

“I didn’t know what came over me, please, I know what I have done is very bad, please help me beg my brother to forgive me because this is a shameful act in the family” he pleaded.

His wife, Mrs Janet Ifan Tyoughche equally confessed that her husband has not been performing his responsibility of providing for the family and he beats her regularly.
