Operatives of the Imo state police command have arrested two brothers identified as Uchechukwu Asuzu, 20, and Bright Ugochukwu, 20, for defiling their 13-year-old cousin identified as Ugochukwu Chigozirim Ehirim, 13, in Ezemanah Ezeamoruo Nkwerre, a community in the state on the 11th of July 2020.

SP Orlando Ikeokwu who is the spokesperson for the IMO state police command disclosed to newmen that the victim was raped by her cousins after her grandfather sent her out of the house. 

In a statement by Ikeokwu he said; 
The victim who stays with her grandfather, was sent on an errand by her grandfather. Unfortunately, she returned home late, as a result, the grandfather sent her out of the house. All efforts to gain entrance into the house proved abortive as her grandfather insisted that she will sleep outside, as a result she was stranded. 
Uchechukwu Asuzu and Bright Asuzu who are cousins to the victim, lured her to their house under the pretext of accommodating her for the night but rather had canal knowledge of her in turns.

The Spokesperson further confirmed that the suspects would be charged to court soon.
