A paedophile was arrested for sexual abuse against a child. He was released after 11days in police custody. He then proceeded to arrest victim’s mother, uncle and a neighbor who effected his arrested. He sexually molested a 3-year old child by fingering her vagina. (Doctor’s report attached).

Police Officers from Oyigbo Area Command, Rivers State allegedly took undisclosed huge sum of amount to effect the arrest of victim’s family. We have been on this case for the past two days and the Area Commander, the IPO refused to release or explain to us their reason for the arrest.

During the period of 11days when the paedophile was in detention, the IPO told the victim’s mother to give her N65,000 to enable her charge the suspect to court. Her failure to pay this said amount led to his release.

We call on passionate Nigerians to quickly help us call the attention of Commissioner of Police, Rivers State Command to quickly investigate and free the innocent family in his detention.
