An 18-year-old , Mizanbilu Yusuf, has been arrested by the Niger State Police Command for allegedly raping a nine-year-old girl.
The suspect confessed to have raped a number of minors in his area in Kafin Koro community in Paikoro local government area of Niger state.
Yusuf was arrested after he had raped his victim whom he dragged to the bush before defiling her.
The father of the victim reported him to security agencies attached to the Kafin Koro Division of Paikoro local government area.
When paraded in Minna, Yusuf confessed that he started the act of defiling minors in his community when he was 17, adding that a number of girls had fallen into his trap.
“I have been in the act and I enjoyed doing it. I do it when I am aroused to have sex and since I do not have a girlfriend, I decided it would be easier to have carnal knowledge of minors in my area to cool off tension.
“It is quite unfortunate that I found myself in this hopeless act. I want to warn other teenagers to shun this wicked act. It may destroy their future.”
He also pleaded for forgiveness from the families of the girls he had defiled.
The Niger State Police Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Abubakar, said that the suspect confessed to the crime during interrogation adding that he was a serial rapist.
