A 42-year-old man has been arrested for luring an 11-year-old girl and raping her in an uncompleted building.
Daily Trust reports that Shadrack defiled the girl on Saturday, June 25, after he had lured the girl into an uncompleted building in the community.
A resident of the area said that the accused who works as a security man at an estate in the area, allegedly lured the girl with a token and took her inside an uncompleted building and raped her.
The resident said that the mother of the girl, who sold provisions in a kiosk, raised an alarm after she went in search of her daughter and discovered the man half naked inside the uncompleted building with her.
“You know, any time the man wants to buy snacks or sachet water from the woman’s shop, she sometimes gives it to the girl to take it to the man.
That Saturday, he asked the woman to give the girl water and bread to take to him. He used the opportunity to lure the girl and defiled her," the resident said, adding that a mob, most of them commercial cyclists, got wind of the incident and almost lynched the accused but for the intervention of some elders.
The suspect was then taken to the police station at Kuje, where a police source confirmed the incident, saying the accused will be charged to court after investigations were concluded.
