After preparing food, I did not see my grandchild who I was calling to come and eat.

So, I pushed the door open and behold my grandchild was naked and her body covered up with semen. I raised an alarm immediately and with the help of other neighbours, my daughter was taken to the hospital.
Vanguard learned that medical test conducted in a nearby hospital (names withheld) confirmed that the victim was raped as she had bruises and semen in her private part.

It was the grandmother of the victim that caught me while calling her to come and eat when they found her inside my room. That was the first time I was doing such and I was caught. I only released on her laps but the test carried out by the hospital said the victim had bruises and semen in her virginal.
