Narrating her ordeal,  the victim said: "My uncle Mr Tyoughche Emmanuel, gave me a black substance in a small bottle to drink after which I slept off and the next thing I noticed was my Uncle putting his fingers inside where I use for urinating. He did so four times on different occasions and also sucked my breasts during these occasions too and my breasts are paining me."
