The raped baby in pool of blood
A 27 year old man, Michael Akpan on Sunday raped an 11-year old baby, causing the baby to bleed profusely.
An eye witness, who gave his name as Great Maxy, said this happened at Idua Road, Eket at about 2.30pm last Sunday.
According to the eye witness, the alleged rapist stays in the same compound with the mother of the defiled baby. He said the man successfully carried out the dastardly act when the nursing mother asked him to look after the baby while she rushed to the market to buy foodstuffs.
Narrating the incident, Maxy said: “I visited my sister, Pat Akpan yesterday (Sunday) who is a medical practitioner and owns pharmacies, one of which is located along Okpongkpong Street by Essa-Akpan, Eket LGA. On getting there, I noticed this sad event occurred a bit earlier before my arrival as one Mrs Magdalene Ikpe rushed her 11months old baby to meet her (my sister) for help as a young man of about 27years raped the baby to his satisfaction and released sperms inside her”.
It is gathered that the alleged rapist, Michael Akpan stays with his relatives who are Mrs Ikpe’s neighbours in the compound.
“She (the child’s mother) left the baby and asked him to look after her at about 2:30pm while she rushed to get foodstuffs at an open market called Urua Nyom Ebe at Afaha-Eket. When she returned, she saw her baby in a pool of blood while the young man tried to escape from the yard. He was apprehended by people in the street while trying to escape”, our source said.
He was however beaten by those who caught him and when asked why he committed such an abominable act, he said it is ‘the handiwork of the devil’. He was later taken to the Police Station, Oron Divisional Area Command.
Meanwhile, the defiled baby was referred by the pharmacist to University of Uyo Teaching Hospital for a comprehensive treatment.
