The Niger state Police Command arrested and detained A 27-year-old man, Usman Adamu, for allegedly raping a 13-year-old girl.
The command’s spokesman, DSP Mohammadu Abubakar, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria in Minna.
Abubakar alleged that the suspect, who resides in the same Barkin-Sale area of Minna with the 13-year-old girl, lured her into his room.
Abubakar said that the suspect would be charged to court after the conclusion of the investigation.
He, however, appealed to parents to always monitor those associating with their children, to prevent girls from sexual abuse.
