A 30-year-old man is held at Bondo Police station after he was arrested for reportedly defiling his 9-year-old niece at Kanyandiri village in Central Sakwa location of Bondo sub-county.
The suspect who has been identified as Lucas Wata was arrested by his family members who handed him over to the security agencies Tuesday night.
According to the Acting Chief of Central Sakwa location Mr. William Oreme, the suspect is said to have lured the Grade Three minor into his house before defiling her then beat her up as she attempted to scream for help.
Chief Oreme told KNA that after she had been defiled by the suspect, the minor managed to escape and fled to her elder uncle to whom she reported the matter.
The administrator stated the minor was given first aid at the nearby Nango Health Centre and later transferred to Bondo sub-county hospital for proper medication.
Mr Oreme condemned the act and called on parents to always ensure they take good care of their children, noting that they should never entrust anybody with their children.
He said that the level of immorality has increased to an extent that even relatives who should protect the children are the ones that violate their rights these days.
