2 held over rape of 8-yearold girl
Police in Gombe State have paraded Ibrahim Ya’u and Faisal Hassan for allegedly raping an-eight-year old girl at Bomala quarters of Gombe metropolis.
Speaking to Daily Trust, the state police spokesman, DSP Fwaje Atajiri, said the men lured the girl with biscuits and groundnut.
He added that the father of the girl noticed that there was something unusual about his daughter and interrogated her.
“The girl told her father what happened. After he reported the matter to us, we arrested the suspects and they both confessed to the crime, saying it was the work of the devil. Ya’u confessed that he has been involved in the act for a while because he has no money to reach out to matured women, while Faisal said it was his first time,” Atajiri said.
He added that both men will soon be charged to court for conspiracy and rape.
