25-year-old man arrested for raping his neighbour's 3-year-old daughter!

Niger State Police Command has arrested a man, Saliu Lawal, 25, for allegedly raping a three-year old girl.

The incident was said to have occurred on Friday August 23, 2013. It was learnt that the suspect, who was a next door neighbour to the parents of the victim, lured the girl into the premises of a primary school and raped her.

Sources told our correspondent that the little girl’s cries attracted passersby, who caught Saliu in the act.

It was further learnt that as soon as the suspect sighted them, he attempted to flee but was apprehended by the concerned neighbours and handed over to the police at Chanchaga Division.

The state’s Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Richard Oguche, said, “Rape is a capital offence and investigation into this case is almost completed.

“We are waiting for the report of a medical test conducted on the victim before we charge the suspect to court.”
