A 10-year-old girl’s private part had to be stitched recently after she was violently raped by 20-year-old, Shamshideen Salihu, in her parents home in Buyinko Junior Quarter Maikunkele, Bosso Local Government Area of the state.
Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Abubakar, told newsmen that Salihu sneaked into the family home of the little girl when her parents were not around and raped her.
The suspect’s evil deed came to light when the mother of the victim, Amina Nuhu, returned home and found her daughter walking abnormaly. She examined her and found blood around her private part. She raised alarm and this attracted her neighbors. The victim told her mother what the suspect had done to her.
The matter was reported to the police while the victim was rushed to the hospital where her private parts were stitched before she was discharged.
Abubakar says the suspect who has since confessed to the crime, will be charged to court soon.
