40-year old arrested for defiling 10-year old in Borno

A 40-year-old man, Muhammad Usman, has been arrested by the police command in Borno for allegedly defiling a 10-year-old girl in Maiduguri.
Commissioner of police, Mr Damian Chukwu , made this known while parading the suspect on Thursday in Maiduguri.

“The suspect has confessed to the act. He has told investigators that he had carnal knowledge of the girl at the Londonciki area of Maiduguri,” he said.
Chukwu explained that the command was awaiting legal advice from the ministry of justice, before prosecuting the suspect.

He expressed dismay over the increase in rape cases in the state, and advised victims to always come forward and seek redress.
“People must change their attitude toward rape. Victims should report, while relations of suspects must stop making unnecessary pleas to save them. 
“It is disheartening to see victims’ families asking the police to drop charges against rape suspects.“Unless we change this attitude, we will continue to witness rapes in the society,” he said.

The Police commissioner said that the command had adopted proactive measures to enhance its operation, protect lives and rid Borno of criminals.
