A 37-year-old HIV-Positive carrier accused of raping a 4-year-old girl in Umuahia, Abia State Mr. Chiemela has reportedly pleaded guilty to the rape allegation leveled against him.
He was said to have been arraigned before a Magistrate Court sitting in Umuahia North local government area of the state capital after being arrested by the police.
It was gathered that the accused pleaded guilty to the three-count charges against him, bordering on rape after they were read for him.
The court was said to have found him guilty and adjourned till July 21 for sentencing.
The accused person, a labourer and a farmer had narrated how he had gone to the victim’s home in search of a woman that is related to the victim’s family to pay her the sum of N3,000 he had earlier borrowed from her.
The accused person said upon arrival at the home of the victim located at Ogbulafor Street in Umuahia, he met the children playing in the parlour.
According to him, while two of the children left the parlour, and he was left with the youngest one, the 4-year-old old girl, he put her on his laps, playing with her.
He was said to have confessed during interrogation that he laid her on the bed where his hand mistakenly touched her on the private part.

“Maybe it’s through the touching”, he stated defending why the blood gushed out from the baby’s private organ.
“I only touched her for a while. When she said she wanted to go inside the room, I left her”, he stated.
