Vito Ogwang, a resident of Tetugu village oluro parish, Ogor sub- County in Otuke district appeared on Wednesday afternoon before the Otuke Grade One Magistrate, Irene Aber, who charged him with aggravated defilement.

John Bosco Opido, the Tetugo village LC I Vice-chairperson, says that they had to report the matter to the police because the girl is too young and is now psychologically disturbed. He says that the suspect confessed to the crime and was forced to pay 5 head of cattle, a goat and Shillings 50,000 for cleansing.
