“She resisted him, ran out of the compound and informed some residents of what has been going through. So the women amongst them took her in for check and confirmed that there had been penetration in her private part.”

The source said that the level of damages caused by his continual penetrations on the minor made the women report the incidents to the state Ministry of Justice where they lodged a formal complaint.

He continued: “So, it was actually the Ministry of Justice that now reported to the human rights desk at the police headquarters at Moscow Road. After receiving the report, the police have been monitoring the man since he was not steady.

“On receiving information that he came back on Sunday, they (police) moved in and arrested him on Monday morning,” the source concluded.
The result of a medical examination carried out on the 13-year-old teenager indicated penetration on her private part.
