The Kano State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps on Wednesday nabbed one Isma’eel Abubakar, 18, for defiling a five-year-old girl.

The NSCDC spokesman, ASC Ibrahim Abdullahi, while making the disclosure in Kano, said the suspect, a resident of Kofar Ruwa Quarters, Kano, was arrested by operatives of the Corps on January 8, 2021.

According to him, he was apprehended shortly after he lured the girl to his room, located at Kofar Ruwa Quarters Kano, and defiled her.

He explained that the suspect, who is a neighbour to the victim, confessed to the crime during interrogation by the corps detectives.

“Investigations into the crime have since been concluded; the suspect will soon be charged to Court,” Abdullahi said.
