From Steph Clem, Umuahia
A top government functionary in Abia state, may have raped his own 11 year old daughter to death.
The alleged rapist is a Commissioner in the Abia state Oil Producing Areas Development Commission (ASOPADEC), Mr. C.C. Onuoha from Ukwa area of the state.
Eye witnesses say the commissioner known to be a drunk had taken a girl suspected to be either his house help or daughter to the hospital in a critical condition as she was bleeding profusely from the mouth and her private part.
It seems though that she was brought in to New Era hospital already dead.
It was said that Mr. Onuoha who initially took the girl to the hospital, ran took to his heels when he saw the magnitude of his actions and had ordered some two young men to deposit the girls’ body at the Federal Medical Centre mortuary.
However, the authorities of the hospital insisted the young men gave them the name of the hospital that confirmed the girl dead which they did, but were told by the hospital management when contacted that they never touched the girl dead or alive.
It was at this point that the management of FMC, arrested the guys and made them disclose who sent them.
Mr. Onuoha who is married to two wives with children, and residing in World Bank estate was subsequently arrested by World Bank police division in Umuahia and has since been in police custody.
There are also insinuations that the said girl may be a child of the man and police are investigating to find out if she was a biological daughter of Onuoha or a step daughter.
When contacted the Police Public Relations Officer of the state command, Geoffery Ogbonna said he was not aware of the incident as he had been engaged with other assignments.
