The suspect who is a father of three, ha reportedly lured the girl to his house where he defiled her after sh was sent to fetch water at a bore hole by her mother.

The young victim identified as Hafsat, was on her way back after fetching the water when the suspect intercepted her and lured her to his house.

A resident said Joshua allegedly forced the girl into his room and locked the door after which he had carnal knowledge of her.

“As soon as they entered the room, Joshua bolted the door and had carnal knowledge of her. Efforts by the girl to raise an alarm while the act lasted proved abortive as he used his hand to cover her mouth and stop her from screaming."

After the act, the girl ran home and reported the incident to her parents who alerted the police, leading to the suspect's arrest.

The Kubwa Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Chief Superintendent Nuruddeen Sabo, confirmed the arrest, saying the case has been transferred to the State CID for further investigations.
