The command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Ebere Amaraizu, said in a statement on Tuesday in Enugu that the suspect was caught in the act by a good Nigerian on Aug. 30.

He said that the suspect committed the alleged offence in one of the structures at the Community Secondary School, Ugbaike in Igbo Eze LGA, NAN reports.
Amaraizu said: “Just as the scriptural saying goes that one’s sin shall find him out, the iniquity of the man has found him out.
“The 75-year-old man was nabbed over alleged defilement of 11-year-old.
“It was gathered that the incident took place in one of the structures at the Community Secondary School, Ugbaike,” he said.
According to the police spokesman, the suspect has been asking for forgiveness, claiming that Satan led him into the crime.
