The Delta State Police Command has announced its intention to pursue legal action against the proprietor of a nursery and primary school for the alleged sexual abuse of a four-year-old girl.
The Delta Police spokesperson, DSP Bright Edafe, in a tweet on Thursday, assured the public that the appropriate authorities will carry out justice.
Edafe gave this assurance while responding to a user on X #EverythingMai who reported the incident.
“The Area Commander just called that this incident happened two weeks ago, though the owner of the school denied it, the Area Commander Agbor and not the Division is currently handling it,” he said.
“I will revert when I get the full update, but I assure us that justice will prevail.
“However, we should avoid settlement because these days parents especially from rural areas go behind the police and collect money from suspects thereby making prosecution very difficult.”
A previous post by the X user stated that the owner of Great Leaders International School in Delta State allegedly sexually assaulted a four-year-old girl, causing significant harm, and used scissors to tear her up so he could fit inside her.
The post further mentioned that the young girl had complained to her mother about experiencing pain upon returning from school.
According to her, the girl’s mother checked her and saw blood clots from the child’s vagina.
She added that the man’s lawyer is telling the mother they should settle the matter within themselves.
