Nine-year-old raped to death in church
The Rivers State Criminal Investigative and Intelligence Department (SCIID) has arrested one Eedee Tombari for allegedly raping a nine year-old pastor’s daughter to death.
The Guardian gathered that mother of the victim, Mrs. Eedeebari Gonis-Kogbara, had taken the deceased to a church programme in Khana Local Government Area of the state.
The 23-year-old suspect was alleged to have gone in, raped her and later dumped the body of the victim at the back of the church fence, after he had discovered that the little girl had died.
The suspect was first arrested by detectives attached to the Bori Area Command and was later transferred to SCIID, where he is currently undergoing further investigation.
Earlier in an interview with journalists, father of the victim, Pastor Peter Gonis-Kogbara, who is a General Overseer of a church in Bodo, said it was the traces of blood that made people to discover where the suspect dumped his dead daughter. He called on Nigerians to come to his aid and ensure that justice prevails in the matter.
Meanwhile, the state chairperson of Federation of International Women Lawyers, Anthonia Osademe, has commended the security operatives for their quick intervention in arresting the suspect.
