A bouncer at a nightclub has been arrested for allegedly defiling a 13-year-old girl at a location on Ojike Street, in the Mile 1 axis of the Diobu community, in the Port Harcourt area of Rivers State.
A source in the area said the bouncer, identified simply as Obidiah, sent the minor to buy him a recharge card for his mobile phone, adding that when the victim returned, the bouncer told her to bring the recharge card into the room.
“Immediately she entered the room and gave the recharge card to Obidiah, he locked the door, increased the volume of his radio set and that was how he had carnal knowledge of her,” the source said.
Explaining further, the source said a co-tenant, upon realising that the minor took time before coming out of the room, questioned her.
The source said, “So, the girl now narrated to the co-tenant of the suspect what transpired and he, in turn, alerted the Mile 1 Police Division. So policemen came and arrest him.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) for Rivers State command, Grace Iringe-Koko has confirmed the incident.
She said that the suspect had been arrested, adding that a preliminary investigation by the police showed that the suspect penetrated the girl.
