A prosecution witness from the Child Protection Network (CPN), under the Anambra State Ministry of Women and Social Welfare, had informed the court that a whistleblower at Enugwu-Ukwu community in Njikoka Local Government Area of Anambra State, in May 2022, brought attention to the alleged incident, leading to the arrest and detention of 48-year-old Thomas Igbo from Igboetiti in Enugu State with the help of Enugwu-Ukwu Community Vigilant Group and operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC).

The prosecution witness further informed the court that after one of the children confirmed that she has been defiled by their father, the three children were taken to Ntasi Centre for Sexual Assault Cases at the General Hospital Enugwu-Ukwu, and that result of medical tests conducted at the hospital also confirmed that they were actually defiled.

Presiding judge, Justice Ike Ogu, after listening to the witness adjourned the matter to 15th June and 18th July 2023 for cross examination and continuation of trial.

Meanwhile, the accused told the press that he was wrongfully accused of defiling his children and detained for over a year and seven months, and that after bail, his entire family, including the wife, has relocated back to their village in Enugu State because of his ordeal.
