 A 40-year-old man, identified as Muhammad Usman, has been arrested by the Borno Police Command for allegedly defiling a 10-year-old girl in Maiduguri.

This was made known by  the Commissioner, Mr Damian Chukwu, while parading the suspect on Thursday in Maiduguri.

Chukwu said that the suspect was apprehended by detectives on June 10, at about 14: 30 p.m..

“The suspect has confessed to the act. He has told investigators that he had canal knowledge of the girl at the Londonciki area of Maiduguri,” he said.

Chukwu explained that the command was awaiting legal advice from the ministry of justice, before prosecuting the suspect.

The commissioner, who expressed dismay over the spate of rape cases in the state, advised victims to always come forward and seek redress.

“People must change their attitude toward rape. Victims should report, while relations of suspects must stop making unnecessary pleas to save them.

“It is disheartening to see victims’ families asking the police to drop charges against rape suspects.

“Unless we change this attitude, we will continue to witness rape in the society,” he said.

The Police commissioner said that the command had adopted proactive measures to enhance its operation, protect lives and rid Borno of criminals.

He said that additional personnel had been deployed to Maiduguri and liberated areas to enhance security, while a conference would be held every month, to review and appraise the security situation.
