Police in Kiira region have arrested a 45-year-old man for allegedly defiling his 15-year-old daughter.

Geoffrey Babalanda, the LCI Chairperson of Namalele-Kabaganda village, in Buwenge sub-county, Jinja District is currently detained at Buwenge Central Police Station.  He was arrested after the girl's mother Jowelia Nabirye reported the matter to the police.

According to Nabirye, she saw her daughter bleeding profusely on 24th, October 2023 and thought she had started her menstrual cycle.

When she took the victim to a clinic, the health workers confirmed penetration, prompting the girl to confess how she had been defiled by her father.

Nabirye says that, in several instances, Babalanda claimed that he was being possessed by demon spirits, which lured him to defile the victim.

Kiira Regional Police Spokesperson, James Mubi said that the victim has been thoroughly examined and is currently seeking medical attention at a health facility.

Mubi further says that inquiries are underway, however, Babalanda will be taken for a mental checkup.
