Adamawa man accused of raping two-year-old, blames alcohol

 

The Adamawa State Police Command has apprehended a 30-year-old man, Buguwa Kwaji, for defiling a two-year-old girl and blaming alcohol for the crime.

Kwaji, a resident of Aljannaru village in Song Local Government Area (LGA), was arrested on November 12, 2023, following a tip-off.

The suspect confessed to defiling the minor, stating that he was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the incident.

“After drinking a gin known as voltage on that fateful day, I lay down, and the little girl came and started playing on my body. So I raped her because I could not resist the urge for sex”, Buguwa said.
