An Ebonyi State Chief Magistrate Court sitting in Abakaliki, on Thursday, remanded one Ndubuisi Ogbonnaya in the custodial facility for allegedly defiling a six-year-old child.

The suspect, a 27-year-old, was said to have taken the victim to his house and violated her.

The victim’s father was said to have noticed that blood was gushing out from her private parts and demanded to know what happened after which the girl told him.

The accused, who was married with four children, reportedly committed the offense in Asaga village, in the Afikpo South Local Government Area on August 4, 2020.

He was arraigned on one count of unlawful sexual intercourse.

The accused, who was not represented in court, confessed to the crime.

However, the chief magistrate, Nnenna Onuoha, said the court lacked the jurisdiction to entertain the case.

She directed that the suspect be remanded at the Nigeria Correctional Centre, Abakaliki, while his case file should be transferred to the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions for legal advice.

The matter was adjourned till November 27, 2020.
