An Assistant headteacher working with Jajere Central Primary School, Abubakar Musa has been arrested by the men of Yobe state police command for allegedly raping one of his pupil, a 10-year-old (name withheld).

The assistant headteacher claimed that the alleged rape incident was consensual.

This was disclosed by the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, ASP Dungus Abdulkarim

The PPRO said Musa who is well known in the community for defiling little childrenŕ, used money to lure his victim, a primary five pupil, into an uncompleted building and raped her on two occasions, July 15 and July 17.

“From our investigation, we found out that Musa met her in the market where she sells sachet water. He then picked two sachets of water and left after telling her to meet him in an uncompleted building for her money. As soon as she arrived, he took advantage of the situation and had sexual intercourse with her.

We also gathered that Musa lured the victim to a-yet-to-be identified place and had canal knowledge of her for the second time. We are now working with the victim to identify the second crime scene,” ASP Abdulkarim said.

When interrogated, Musa confessed to having had sex with the little girl twice but blamed his action on the work of the devil. He added that the little girl consented to him raping her.

The police spokesperson says the matter will be charged to court soon.
