The Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC), Kwara Command, has arrested a 35-year-old man, Yusuf Abdullahi, for allegedly having canal knowledge of an 11-year girl.
Mr Babawale Afolabi, the spokesman of the command, made this known via a statement in Ilorin on Monday.
He said that the case was reported to the Gender Unit of the NSCDC on May 15.
“Around 10:30 a.m, Abdullahi was caught in the act by one of our officers at Kaima Division, gaining canal knowledge of an 11-year-old girl, by the name Memunat.
“Yusuf Abdullahi stays in Gbogbo Giwa, Ile Atako, with his wife and three children.
“The man said that his wife just put to bed and that he was staying in the same house with Memunat.
“Abdullahi, who claimed to be a mechanic at Eyenkoro, said that he was sleeping while the girl came to wake him up to request for his phone.
“He said that afterwards, he played an Indian video for her and that was how it all started.
“He explained that he was only romancing her and have not gained access to her private part,” Afolabi said.
The PRO added that Memunat, on the other hand, had been taken to the hospital for proper medical scrutiny.
