The Niger State Police Command has arrested a 22-year-old suspect child rapist identified as Chukwuebuka Nnaji, for allegedly raping a 13-year-old girl.
The suspect who met the little girl at a hotel at Madalla Junction, reportedly lured his victim with a gift and dragged her to an isolated area in the bush and had carnal knowledge of her.
Confessing to committing the said crime, the suspect child rapist told a Punch correspondent;
“I knew she is an underage girl; that was the reason why I have not impregnated her. I want her to be of age, so I can marry her.”
“I had sex with her because I wanted to deflower her but it has dawned on me that I was simply infatuated.”
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Abubakar, who confirmed the incident said that Nnaji would soon be arraigned in court.
This is coming few months after 30-year-old rape suspect, Mohammed Abubakar, admitted to luring a nine-year-old primary four pupil with a N10 lollipop because the wife just gave birth.
Abubakar, a commercial motorcyclist, and resident of Tudun Fulani in Bosso Local Government Area of Niger State, disclosed this while being interrogated by the Niger State Child Right Protection Agency.
Abubakar said: “I saw her outside her school where I had parked my motorcycle to buy sweet and she told me to give her sweet. I gave her a sweet and then lured her to an uncompleted building and had sex with her. I am a married man and we have a three-month-old baby; I have not been sleeping with my wife because she just gave birth recently and that tempted me into doing the act with the girl. I only had sex with the girl once; I am sorry.”
Narrating her ordeal, the victim said:
“He usually lures me to an uncompleted building close to the school during break time. He will touch my buttocks and put his finger in my private part. He also gives me sweet and promised to give me N6,000 if I did not tell anyone about the act.”
