The Plateau state police command has arrested a 20-year-old suspect named Issac Boniface who confessed to raping the 4-year-old daughter of his co-tenant.
According to the suspect, he started developing feelings for the minor because anytime he passes, she would greet him.
“I live in the same compound with the girl and her mother. Anytime I’m going to work or passing by, the girl will greet me and I will greet her back because we are friends.
So, one day, I took her to a corner in the compound and raped her. The mother later told me to follow her to somewhere and that is how I was arrested by the police.”
The State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Issac Akinmoyede, condemned the act and said the susect would be charged to court soon.
