The Anambra State police has arrested a 75-year-old man who has been identified as Sunday Muoghalu for raping and impregnating one 13-year-old girl in the State.
The suspect was arrested on Sunday night, December 11, by the police with the help of the Anambra State Commissioner for Women and Social welfare, Hon Ify Obinabo.
The Anambra State Government rescued the minor following a viral video which showed her carrying her newborn baby in a hospital in the state.
She was reportedly held in the hospital over her inability to settle her medical bill, after her delivery of the baby.
The young girl, who hails from Akwa Ibom State, told reporters in Awka, the state capital, shortly after her rescue, that her guardian serially raped her before getting her pregnant.
