A Civil Defence official arrested for allegedly defiling a 7-year-old girl in Zamfara state.
Sani Yahaya who is an operative of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) got arrested after he lured the little girl with fruits into a vacant house at Samaru area, Gusau where he was deployed as a security guard.
The father of the victim said the sad act was exposed after his daughter started crying bitterly in the house, attracting the attention of passersby.
“Our daughter was sent on an errand by her mother close to the house where the Yahaya was posted to.
“As she was passing along the road, he asked her to come into the house to collect fruits. That was how he got the girl and forcefully defiled her.”
Meanwhile NSCDC, Maru, describe the sad act as an embarrassment to the NSCDC, and further disclosed that Yahaya will be arraigned in court if a doctor confirms that the girl was raped.
