Popular singer in Imo state Uba Obinna Agbaso aka ‘Ababanna’, has been arrested by men of the police division, Agbala for allegedly raping a 12-year old girl.
The Nation reports that the victim is the daughter of a vulcanizer, Victor Okereocha, and was allegedly raped over three times by the singer.
An uncle of the victim, Godwin Okereocha, said the suspect and the victim live in the same compound and that the suspect took advantage of the girl each time her father left for work.
Speaking on how he was caught, Okereocha said that the little girl at some point could not endure the torture of dying in silence and so confided in her immediate elder brother who is 14 years old.
“Feeling that their father was just a struggling man and may not be able to do much, the poor girl and her brother conspired and secretly fled home for the safety of the girl.
The uncle accused some politicians of making plans to get the accused singer out of police custody.
