An 8-year-old girl has been defiled by her 31-year-old neighbour, Emmanuel Ude, in Karmo, a town near Abuja.
Speaking to the courts, the prosecutor, David Kafanchan said, the issue was reported to the Karmo Police Division by the father of the victim on 7th July 2016 after blood was discovered oozing out of her private parts.
When question on why she was discharging blood, the young girl disclosed that Ude had called her the day before and fingered her private parts which caused the injuries.
According to Kafanchan, the girl was sent to the Gwarinpa General Hospital for a test, after which the case was reported to the police when the doctors confirmed that she had been defiled.
Mr. Kafanchan however, pleaded not guilty to the defilement charge and asked for bail.
Presiding Magistrate, Omolola Tolulope rejected the plea and asked the suspect to be remanded in prison custody whiles the case was adjourned to the 9 of August 2016.
