A 32-year-old Abuja based butcher identified as Emeka, has been arrested by the police for allegedly raping his wife's 10-year-old niece who has been living with his family at Byazhin Across in Kubwa, a satellite town in the FCT.

Daily Trust reports that Emeka took advantage of his wife travelling to her hometown to lure the victim to his room where he forcefully had carnal knowledge of her, causing serious damage to her private parts and had to be rushed to the hospital. 

It was gathered that a neighbour noticed the girl walking awkwardly and called her to find out what was wrong with her but she would not say what happened, prompting the neighbour to raise an alarm which led to the arrest of the suspect by the police.

A test conducted on the victim at the Kubwa General Hospital proved she had been defiled and her hymen broken, with severe bruises around the labia of her private parts.

The Divisional Police Officer (DPO), in charge of Kubwa, Chief Superintendent Nuruddeen Sabo, has confirmed the incident, and added that the case would be transferred to the State CID for further investigation.
