Haruna Mohammed has spoken about the accusation. "I don’t even know what pushed me to have sexual intercourse with little girls forcefully; each time I stopped, something will push me to do it again.

“It never occurred to me that one day, police operatives will apprehend me. Now, it is clear to me that what I did was wrong and this is why the law is taking its course" Mohammed told Punch.

The Public Relations Officer of the Niger state command Comfort Olawumi said investigations have been concluded and the suspect was arraigned in court.

"There is no hiding place for the evil ones in this state, we must continue to fish them out to face the wrath of the law. We will do our best to make Niger State crime-free" she also said.
