In his waterloo, a 74-year-old man, Bassey Inyang, was nabbed and handed over to the police by his community for alleged sexual abuse of a 12-year-old girl in Calabar.

The suspect, who lives at 14 Waddell Street, Mbukpa in Calabar, was arrested by men of the Anti-Cult and Kidnapping Squad of the Cross River Police Command following an alarm raised by members of the community.

A witness who didn’t want his name on print had alleged that this was not Inyang’s first sexual abuse case while other parents, who had similar experiences, also opened up to tell their stories.

He noted that luck ran out of the suspect when the mother of the 12-year-old (name withheld) came to the suspect’s compound to confront him because her daughter had contracted a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD).

The mother of one of the victims had noticed blood stains on the underwear of the minor and asked her what happened and she opened up that she had been assaulted sexually by the suspect.

Commenting on the incident, Mr Pendo Ned, Secretary of Ikot Edet Etim village in Efut Abua West clan in the Mbukpa area, said when they got the information, the suspect was brought before the Community Head, Muri Ebuka Ebuka.

“Before the community, the suspect confessed to the heinous crime.

“We seriously condemn such crime against minors reportedly perpetrated by the suspect; we invited the police to pick him for further interrogation,” he said.
