One Adamu Sani has been apprehended for allegedly raping his two nieces, the police in Nasarawa state have said.
Sani defiled the minor aged 10 and 4 years old respectively in the Karu Local Government Area of the state.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Ramhan Nansel, made the disclosure in Lafia on Friday.
Sani was paraded alongside a total of 29 suspected criminals who were arrested for committing various crimes across the 13 LGAs of the state.
Nansel said, “Recently, a complaint was lodged at Mararaba ‘B’ Division that two young girls between the ages of Ten (10) and Four (4) years were raped by their Uncle.
“They were left in the custody of one Adamu Sani ‘M’, the younger brother to the complainant. While their parents were out to make earns meet, he warned them not to inform their parents.
“Upon receipt of the complaint, Police operatives swung into action and got the suspect arrested, and investigation into the matter is ongoing.”
While parading other suspected criminals, Nansel mentioned the arrest of two other suspected rapists who allegedly raped an 8-year-old girl in an uncompleted building in the Akwanga LGA of the state, adding that their arrest was possible due to painstaking efforts by officers of the command.
He said, “On 05/09/2023 at about 3 pm, a complaint was lodged at Akwanga Division that, the duo of Abdullahi Ibrahim and Muhtari Abdullahi conspired and lured an 8years old girl into an uncompleted building where they took turns to have unlawful carnal knowledge of her.
“Reacting to the unsavoury development, Police operatives immediately launched a manhunt for the suspects and got them arrested. They have confessed to the commission of the crime.”
While warning all criminal elements to leave the state without further delay, Nansel said the suspects will be charged to court upon conclusion of the investigation at the State Criminal Investigation Department
