A suspected rapist, identified as Abubakar Yakubu, has made some shocking confessions after he was arraigned for allegedly defiling two minors in the Limawa area of Minna, Niger State capital.
Confessing his crimes, the rapist revealed that he did what he did because he lacked confidence in approaching mature ladies.
Abubakar Yakubu is a 30-year-old male of the Limawa area of Minna, and he was arrested for assaulting little girls of the age of six and eight years.
He was paraded at the Niger State Police headquarters in Minna. The State Commissioner of Police, CP Shawulu Ebenezer Damamman said the suspect lures his victims with a token of fifty or hundred Naira.
According to him, “On 2/1/2024 at about 1700hrs, based on information received, the Crack Squad arrested one Abubakar Yakubu, 30yrs, of Limawa area of Minna, suspected of assaulting minor girls within the community s*xually”.
He explained that, “during preliminary investigation, the suspect narrated that he was a tricycle rider and that he had been having carnal knowledge of two minor girls within the community.
“He also confessed that he usually lured the little girls into his house with a token of fifty naira or one hundred naira since last year.
“He mentioned two other girls he attempted to have the same act with, including one of his relatives whom he has been trying to defile.”
Damamman added that the girls were taken for medical attention and were undergoing counseling with relevant government agencies.
