Nigerian Govt declares man wanted over alleged rape of 3-year-old daughter


The Minister of Women Affairs, Uju Kennedy-Ohanenye, has announced a N1 million bounty on one Magnus Okpalannadi, who allegedly defiled his three-year-old daughter.

This was contained in a statement issued on Wednesday by the ministry spokesperson, Grace Njoku.

The Minister stated that she received a report that 62-year-old Okpalannadi, a resident of Onitsha, Anambra State, was alleged to have been sexually molesting his underaged daughter.

The suspect, however, disappeared before he could be apprehended.

Mrs Kennedy-Ohanenye further pledged the government’s resolve to protect the rights of every Nigerian child.

She also reiterated the government’s commitment to creating a safe environment for its citizens.

“President Bola Tinubu-led administration has zero tolerance for child abuse and molestation.

“Hence would ensure the immediate prosecution of the pedophile to serve as a deterrent to would-be perpetrators,” she said.
