A 38-year-old man, Simon Emeka, was on Friday remanded by a Makurdi Chief Magistrate Court for defiling his seven-month-old daughter. The court heard that the infant who was allegedly raped by her father, Emeka, is now in the hospital for medical attention.

 Police prosecutor told the court that on June 1st, 2020, one Josephine Habba of No.34 Modern Market Road in Makurdi reported to Nigeria Police Force ‘D’ Division Makurdi that on the same date she went to Jestic Hospital in Makurdi with her daughter for treatment, she heard one Mrs Favour Emeka crying and telling a nurse that her seven-month-old baby girl was raped by her husband, Emeka.

 The prosecution further said, during Police investigation Simon Emeka was arrested for committing the crime which was contrary to section 391 and 284 of the penal code law of Benue State. However, no plea was taken for want of jurisdiction.
