52-yr-old security guard in trouble for raping 14-yr-old girl in Abuja

A 52-year-old security man in Abuja has been arrested for allegedly raping a 14-year-old groundnut hawker in an uncompleted building.

A victim of rape

Daily Trust reports that the incident was reported to the police by a resident of the area identified as Moses Ishaku, on Wednesday, September 29, 2016.

Ishaku had reportedly told the police that Ebenezer who is a security man at a housing estate in the area, had allegedly lured the girl who is a groundnut hawker, into an uncompleted building in the area and defiled her.

Ishaku reportedly said:

“One of the laborers working in the estate saw the time the security man called the girl to bring groundnut. When he didn’t see the girl again, he decided to check on her and he caught the man naked on top of the girl.

The man raised an alarm which attracted some residents in the area who arrested the man and handed him over to vigilantes."

A member of the vigilante group in the area who confirmed the incident said the guard confessed defiling the girl during interrogation.

“The security man tried to deny raping the girl before the family members of the victim but when we took him aside and questioned him, he admitted that it was the devil that pushed him to commit the act.

He said  that the suspect was later handed over to the police at Kuje," the vigilante officer said.
