More facts have emerged on the case of a three year old girl, (names withheld) who was sexually assaulted by one Mr. Sesan, resulting to severe injuries on her private organs.
During a visit to the Trauma center, Ondo, the mother of the little girl, Mrs Sola Adeniran, told a delegation of members of The Nigeria Association of women journalists, NAWOJ in the state that the man who defiled the girl is her husband whom they moved in with this February after being thrown out by her first husband, the father of the girl.
The three year old girl has gone through the first surgery and is expected to go for another surgery soon due to damage on her vulva caused by the intercourse.
The medical team that received members of NAWOJ gave assurance that the girl is responding to treatment and recuperating well.
In a telephone interview, Police Sources from Osun State informed that Sesan, the man who defiled the three year old girl is now in Police Custody at the family unit of the criminal investigation department, Osogbo.
