The 16 year old boy identified as Paul Ikwechegh, from Igbere in Bende LGA of Abia State, allegedly killed forced his penis into the a 10 year old girl’s anus crippling her and leading her to untimely death.
The devilish incident as learnt took place on Saturday 5th October, 2019 at No 51 Emeonye Street off Ngwa Road, Aba.

Our correspondent gathered that the victmed hailed from Nkporo, in Ohafia LGA of the same Abia State, was forcefully taken away against her will by the suspect who defiled her in a brutal manner that led to her death.
A source in the area told our reporter that the suspect is alleged to be a strong consumer of tramadol which could explain what gave him the mind to perpetrate such an act.
According to the source, “I don’t know whether Paul got any help from any of his friends, but we discovered he took the little girl to the place he perpetrated that act with trick of someone who is much older.
“From what I learnt, he tried penetrating her from the vagina, but only him and his god knows why he later decided to do it through the anus and I learnt he consumes tramadol so much at his age.
“After the whole show, the girl was left paralyzed and identified him as the culprit. The family rushed her to the hospital while the police arrested Paul.
“The little girl cried until she died on Wednesday while receiving treatment at the hospital. I don’t know whether she got the right treatment, but the truth is that enough damage was done to her anus by that boy.
“He’s still with the police now and I don’t know if there’s anything going on that case because it has being silent without anyone hearing about it.”
When contacted, Abia State Police Commissioner, Ene Okon confirmed that the case was reported to the Aba Area Command last week.
Okon said that the report of the death of the little girl has taken the case away from rape to murder and vowed that police will ensure that justice is never denied on the matter.
“The case was transferred to state CID last week, but if the victim has died as Information is saying, I’ll now intimate the CID that the girl has eventually died and that will turn the case to murder and will be investigated as murder.
“So, since the information is now that the girl is dead, it will now be treated as murder. Trust us that justice will be done.”
