“It is pertinent to mention at this juncture that the suspect had earlier this year attempted to rape a minor whom he forcefully grabbed in the company of two of her mates. However, as soon as he stripped the little girl in a bid to defile her, people who were within the vicinity pursued him and he dived into this same river. This has been his modus operandi,” 

While commending the youth of Abofia village, for assisting the police to arrest the suspect, the PPRO urged residents of Ebonyi State to always rise to such occasion within their various communities and partner the police to rid the State of crime and criminality.

The suspect admitted to raping the victim and attempting to rape the first victim, a minor earlier in the year.
