A middle-aged man has been severely beaten by an angry mob after he was caught raping a seven-year-old girl at Odion in Warri District, Delta State
The suspect identified as Tenimu, an ex-convict, who has always been in and out of prison, was allegedly caught in the act at about 4:00 p.m on Saturday, July 14.
According to reports, after the suspect confessed to the crime, youths in the community tied him to a stake and gave him the beating of his life.
It was gathered that he allegedly lured the victim to a hideout and defiled her.
In the same vein, one 29-year-old man, Abdullahi Abubakar, has violated the sanctity of the church when he raped an 11-year-old girl behind an orthodox church in Minna, Niger State.
Abdullahi raped the teenager three times at the same spot and blamed his action on the “devil”.
The suspect was arrested after raping the girl for the third time and was paraded before newsmen at the police headquarters last weekend.
Abubakar confessed to commiting the crime, saying he did not know what came upon him.
He however said:
“I love the girl that is why I have sex with her.”
“I love the small girl, she is so beautiful that I can’t let her go without making love to her as she always submit to me and I have been making love to her at least I have done it for more than three times,” Abubakar, who said he was not married, confessed.
