A 59 year old HIV positive man, Monday Ekpade (pictured), has been arrested by the Delta state police command for sexually assaulting a 6 year old girl in Agbor on Sept 4th in Nigeria.

Speaking on his arrest, the spokesperson of the state police command, Celestina Kalu, said
"On the 4th of this month, we got a report from our division in Agbor, that one Monday defiled a small girl of six years. You can imagine this man with HIV penetrating a small girl of six years, what would be the fate of the little girl? And we don't know how many little girls he has done this to".
The little girl's grandfather who she was staying with when the incident happened, said Blessing was out on an errand when she met with Monday
"Her mother sent her on an errand to go and buy something. When she was going, Monday caught her on the road and had sex with her"he said
When interrogated, Monday confessed to the crime but however blamed the devil
"It is the devils work. The little girl caused it. She came to our house and then I tried having sex with her but my manhood was too big. I have only defiled her two times but the little girls its three times"he said
He would soon be charged to court.
