An operative of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) identified as Sani Yahaya has been arrested for allegedly defiling a 7-year-old girl in Zamfara State.
Yahaya who lured the little girl with fruits into a vacant house at Samaru area, Gusau where he was deployed as a security guard, was arrested by his colleagues after a complaint was lodged against him by the victim’s family.
Recounting how the incident occurred, the father of the victim said the sad act was exposed after his daughter started crying bitterly in the house, attracting the attention of passersby.
He said, “Our daughter was sent on an errand by her mother close to the house where the Yahaya was posted to.
“As she was passing along the road, he asked her to come into the house to collect fruits. That was how he got the girl and forcefully defiled her.”
NSCDC Spokesperson in the state, Mr Aminu Maru confirmed Yahaya’s arrest and further disclosed that investigation is ongoing.
He said, “The corps member is still in our custody. The father of the girl reported the case at the command’s headquarters through the Intelligence and Investigation Department, complaining against one of our staff members, Sani Yahaya on alleged rape.
“While investigating the issue, the suspect said he did not have the carnal knowledge of the girl, confirming, however, that he grabbed her into a room where he gave her two nuts of umbrella tree.”
Describing the sad act as an embarassment to the NSCDC, Maru disclosed that Yahaya will be arraigned in court if a doctor confirms that the girl was raped.
Man Arraigned For Allegedly Raping His 7-Month-Old Daughter Starting From When She Was 3 Months Old
A 38-year-old man has been arraigned before a Makurdi Chief Magistrate court for allegedly raping his seven-month-old daughter.
The father, named Mr. Simon Emeka, is alleged to have raped daughter Prosper Emeka starting from when she was only 3 months old.
When the case came up in court on Friday, June 5, prosecuting police officer, Sergeant Friday Kanshio told the court that on June 1st, 2020, one Ms. Josephine Habba of No. 34 Modern Market Road Makurdi reported the matter at the Nigerian Police Force ‘D’ Division, Makurdi.
Kanshio said Habba had complained that on the same date, she went to Jestic Hospital in Makurdi with her daughter for treatment and heard one Mrs Favour Emeka crying and telling a nurse that her seven months old baby girl named Prosper Emeka was raped by her husband, Simon Emeka. It was alleged that the accused had been raping the baby since she was three months old.
Kanshio said during police investigation, the suspect was arrested for committing the crime which is contrary to sections 391 and 284 of the penal code law of Benue State.
When the charge was read to him, the accused pleaded not guilty to the charge. However, no plea was taken for want of jurisdiction.
The prosecuting police officer told the court that investigation into the matter was still on and asked for another date to enable the prosecution prove its case.
The trial Magistrate, Mr. Isaac Ajim remanded the accused at the Nigerian Correctional Centre and adjourned the case to August 31, 2020, for further mention.
He Is Your Boyfriend Not Your Boycustomer — Reno Omokri Speaks To Ladies That Are In Relationships Because Of Money
Nigerian popular political critic, Reno Omokri in a recent nugget on Saturday spoke on relationship especially ladies that see their boyfriends as money making machines.

He stated people need to know this else they wouldn’t know the meaning of true love.

12-Year-Old Gang-Raped By Four Masked Men In Lagos
A 12-year-old girl has allegedly been gang-raped by four masked men in the Ajah area in Lagos state. Punch reports that the victim simply identified as Blessing, was raped at her residence on Thursday, May 4.
Recounting what happened, her distraught mother who gave her name as Anthonia, said
“I went to the office and was called (on the phone) and told that my daughter was raped in our house. I learnt she was having her online class when suddenly, there was a power outage. My husband rushed out to get fuel at a filling station so that she could participate in the class seamlessly.
Blessing told us that while she was in the compound, four masked men jumped into the house through the fence. They took her inside and took turns to have sex with her, leaving her with multiple injuries.
Immediately I received the call, I became so mad. I headed for the hospital where my daughter was rushed to. When I got there, I was told she suffered ‘vaginal trauma’. The underneath of her clitoris was bruised and she had a deep tear that made her bleed severely.
She could have passed out if not that her dad got back home early. She lost a lot of blood. The bleeding stopped after the tear was stitched; although, she is still experiencing very severe pain.
I don’t think we are secure anymore because it seems like we are being monitored. They perpetuated their evil within the few minutes it took my husband to buy fuel.
They could not enter through the gate because of an ongoing construction at a building opposite ours. The site was crowded and that made them avoid entering through the front door. They scaled the fence. Some policemen followed us to the house and saw how the attackers scattered our things around.” she said
Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the state police command, Bala Elkana, said the police are currently on the trail of the suspects.
“The police have been duly informed of the atrocity and have commenced investigation into the case. We are on the trail of the culprits. It’s a bit complicated because those guys wore face masks, which makes us suspect the culprits are people close to them. They probably covered their faces to conceal their identities.” Bala said
This incident comes a few days after an 18-year-old student, Barakat Bello, was gang-raped and stabbed to death by unknown persons in Ibadan, Oyo state.
