They were arrested on June 13, 2016, according to the spokesperson for the state command, DSP Abubakar Zubairu.

Zubairu said, “The duo, aged 67, and 30-year-old respectively, were arrested following a complaint by the parents of the girl.”

“Auwal, who was the parent’s neighbour, was arrested after medical personnel confirmed an earlier alleged rape on the same minor.”

“The suspects would soon appear in court,”

Hindatu Mohammed, the mother of the infant said her daughter had just returned from school, when she sent her on an errand.

It was during the court of this that a boy came to report that her daughter has been raped, and the culprit apprehended.

She said, “One boy came to my house to inform me that my daughter has been raped and that a woman who was passing-by caught the old man in the act in an uncompleted building within the area and she called for help which resulted to his arrest.”

“So, I went out with my co-wife to see for myself after which we reported the case at Tudun Nupawa Police Station.”

“On arriving at the station, we were informed that my daughter had been taken to hospital to ascertain if she was actually raped.”

“The police personnel later returned and confirmed that rape actually took place and I was asked to pay N500 for fuel, which I did.”

“I am so afraid that she might be infected with HIV and AIDS and I was told that after the doctor’s investigation, it was discovered that she had earlier been raped by another person and it was our neighbor, Muhammed Auwal that my daughter identified.”

“I have spent N8, 000 so far but we are yet to receive any drug; we are only using natural herbs to heal her from injuries inflicted on her.”

“I am calling on the security agencies to give my daughter justice because people are calling and asking me to forgive them”.

The cases of rape against infants have soon become a common thing. Parents have been advised by state security agencies to keep vigilant and monitor their children more closely.
