Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Adamu Saleh, Gombe

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.
