The police in Niger State have arrested a 25- year-old man, Tunde Vincent, for allegedly raping a 12-year-old girl at Madalla village in the Suleja Local Government Area of the state.
The father of five allegedly ambushed his victim and assaulted her in an uncompleted building in the area.
Northern City News gathered that the incident occurred sometime in January this year, when the girl was on her way from an errand to Madala town.
The suspect told Punch correspondent on Thursday that he had been engaging in the act for some time.
He said, “I don’t have appetite to make love to grown up women; I prefer little girls to satisfy my sexual urge and enjoy doing that as long as I want it; each time I stopped, something would push me to do it again.”
The Police Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Abubakar, said the suspect had confessed to the crime and regretted his action.
He added that the suspect was arrested by the police operatives attached to Madalla Division.
Abubakar said the command had concluded investigation and would soon arraign the suspect in court.
