The state prosecutor, Ambrose Opira, told court that on May 6th 2012 between 6:00 and 7:30pm, Robert Ojok waylaid the little girl as she was returning from the bush where she had gone to monitor the charcoal that was burning, and dragged her to a nearby hut where he defiled her.
The court also heard that Ojok allegedly threatened to kill the minor if she told anyone.
The minor while in court also explained that now for over 6 times her father has been defiling her, whenever her mother Florence Aber was away.
