NSCDC Commandant in the state, Dr Muhammed Fari, said this during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday, September 26, in Damaturu.

According to Fari, the command has recorded more cases of rape, indecency and criminal breach of trust in the last three months, than it had last year.

Fari said that several suspects have been charged to court  by the command for contravening sections 283, 285 and 312 of the Penal Code.

Throwing more light on the seriousness of the issue, Fari told NAN of one of the rapes cases which involved a 40-year-old  deaf and dumb man, Shaaibu Danladi who defiled a 6-months-old baby in Potiskum.

Medical reports on the child who is currently undergoing treatment at the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital shows that she sustained tear in her vagina down to her anus.

Fari said, “the case no: YBS/PT/CMCII/091c/2016  suffered set back due to lack of a sign language expert at the court to communicate with the deaf and dumb suspect.”
