“When the children were rescued, they were first taken to Ntasi Centre Enugwu-Ukwu for medical examinations and treatment and were ascertained defiled by the doctor on duty.

“As at when they were brought to the hospital, there were fresh bruises on their private parts even as the area was also reddish and swollen.

“Speaking with the children who confirmed that they were constantly molested by their father, they pleaded not to return to their father’s house for fear of being severely punished.
