According to reports, he lured the toddler into his room and had sex with her over this past weekend. Another source said the toddler whose Identity was not revealed was sent to buy Vitamin C from the Old man before the incidence happened.
Angry mobs descended on the old man and they were ready to kill him before he was rescued and taken to the police station.
A relative said; “When the girl came home on Tuesday, we discovered she was walking funny. So, I took her inside my house and checked her. She revealed to me that Ikechukwu, popularly known as Ad’Igbo (Baba Igbo) kissed her and touched her private part with his pen*s.”
