Parading the suspect before newsmen on Wednesday, the Police spokesperson in the state, SP Gambo Isah, said the suspect lured the girl and repeatedly had unlawful carnal knowledge of her in his apartment at the community.
“He lured the young girl of about 12 years of age and serially had unlawful carnal knowledge of her without the knowledge of the parents to the extent that he even impregnated her.
“In fact, this young girl had delivered a baby after Caesarean Section (CS) at the General Hospital Katsina in which investigation is ongoing,” Isah has said.
He added that “anytime she comes to school, he will take her away to his own house and this man is married with three wives. What is he looking for in a young girl of 12 years? Right now, we don’t know how the girl will feed the baby.”
While confessing when paraded, the suspected rapist who confirmed he had three wives, admitted that he had raped the 12-year-old student and she got pregnant.
“I do pay her N200, N300 and sometimes N500 before she agreed to have sexual intercourse with me. She gave birth to baby boy on Sunday,” Sale has said.
SP Isah called on the public, especially parents to be vigilant in order to avert such ugly incidents in the state, saying due to young age, the victim does not have the breast milk with which to feed the infant.
