A 30-year-old has been caught on a CCTV footage having carnal knowledge of an 11-year-old girl in Sapele, Delta State.
According to the Nation, the incident took place last Wednesday.
A source who spoke on the incident noted that the victim was assaulted when she went to use a convenience room, only to come out few minutes later crying and claiming to have been abused by the suspect.
The 30-year-old man who was identified as Jomaph denied violating the young girl and threatened to arrest her and her family members.
However, a CCTV camera installed by a neighbour for business reportedly exposed him in the act.
The incident was confirmed by the spokesperson of the state police command, Onome Onowakpoyeya on Tuesday.
She noted that she is yet to get an official report on the incident.
“The incident happened,” she said, adding, “They said, initially, the man denied, until they brought the CCTV footage and he owned up.”
