The Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Borno Command, on Thursday, parades four men for allegedly raping a 13-year-old girl in Maiduguri.
The Commandant of the corps, Alhaji Ibrahim Abdullahi, disclosed this to journalists in Maiduguri.
Abdullahi, who named the suspects simply as Rawana, Adam, Muhammad and Ibrahim, said they were arrested by good Samaritans at Gwange area of Maiduguri on Sept. 7.
He said that the suspects allegedly enticed the girl with a token and lured her into a room where they defiled her.
“A member of the victim’s family caught the randy men in the act and alerted residents of the area who arrested them.
“Preliminary investigations showed that the prime suspect lured the girl into a room and had canal knowledge of her after giving her N50.
“The suspects had sex with the girl one after the other.
“Medical examinations on the girl indicated severe penetration with no implications,” he said.
He said that the command would transfer the case on completion of all preliminary investigations to the National Agency for Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons (NAPTIP) for prosecution.
The commandant, who expressed dismay over the spate of rape cases in the state, called for behavioural change on the part of victims’ families to seek redress.
“Victim’s families must be bold to seek redress in order to get rid of the menace,” he said.
According to him, the command had recorded four rape cases in the past four weeks in the state.
