NSCDC nabs man, 30, for defiling 12-year-old Nasarawa girl

One Mohammed Sani, 30, has been apprehended by operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps in Nasarawa State for allegedly defiling a 12-year-old girl in the Angwatashi area of the Obi Local Government Area of Nasarawa state.

Parading the suspect at the state headquarters of the NSCDC in Lafia on Tuesday, the Public Relations Officer of the command, Mr Saraju Muhammed, said Mohammed lured his victim into a secluded place on the pretext of buying sachet water from her and had carnal knowledge of her.

It was gathered that when the victim came home, her parents reported the incident at the Angwatashi Police Station and the suspect was arrested.

Recounting her ordeal to our correspondent in an exclusive interview immediately after the suspect was paraded, the victim said Mohammed threatened to kill her if she revealed the incident to anyone.

The NSCDC image maker said that the suspect had earlier confessed to the act and would be charged as soon as the command completed its investigation.
