Six Men Are Arrested In Bauchi For Supposedly Raping A 12-Year-Old Girl

Six men have been detained by the Bauchi State Police Command for raping a 12-year-old girl in the state’s Katagum Local Government Area.

He said that after enticing the youngster with presents costing between N100 and N200, the suspects, who are between the ages of 40 and 50, admitted to knowing her sexually.


The Lower Sharia Court in Yayu Town, Chinade District, and Katagum LGA referred the case on January 18, 2023, for a quiet inquiry involving a 12-year-old girl who had been raped many times, according to the statement.


“The Gender Unit attached to SCID Bauchi State Police Command undertook a covert investigation.


The inquiry did, however, lead to the following suspects: Mustapha Kawu, 40; Abubakar Bello, 50; Idriss Yakubu, 40; Nasiru Dalhatu, 40; Idris Sarkin Ruwa, 50; and Mustapha Kawu, 40, all of Yayu village, Katagum LGA.


The suspects admitted that they had had sexual knowledge of the young girl and had on many occasions used monetary presents worth between N100 and N200 to seduce her.


“All of the suspects admitted under questioning that they had sexual contact with the victim who was underage.”
