The Nasarawa State Police Command has captured Mr. Adamu Sani on allegations of sexually assaulting two of his nieces, aged 10 and 4, in the Karu Local Government Area of the state.
During a press conference in Lafia on Friday, DSP Ramhan Nansel, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, unveiled this information. The announcement was part of the parade of 29 suspected criminals apprehended for various offenses across the 13 local government areas of the state.
Ramhan elaborated on the arrest, stating that it was initiated after a complaint was filed at Mararaba ‘B’ Division, detailing the distressing incident of alleged rape of the two minors.
“Recently, a complaint was lodged at Mararaba ‘B’ Division, detailing a harrowing incident where two young girls aged Ten (10) and Four (4) years were allegedly raped by their Uncle.
“The girls were left in the custody of Mr. Adamu Sani, the younger brother of the complainant, while their parents were out trying to make ends meet. The perpetrator warned them not to inform their parents about the assault.
“In response to the complaint, Police operatives swiftly swung into action, apprehending the suspect. The investigation into this distressing matter is currently ongoing.”
Nansel, in addition to the apprehension of Mr. Adamu Sani, mentioned the arrest of two other suspected rapists accused of assaulting an 8-year-old girl in an unfinished building in the Akwanga LGA of the state. He commended the relentless efforts of the police force that led to the successful capture of these individuals.
“On 05/09/2023 at about 3 pm, a complaint was lodged at Akwanga Division that, the duo of Abdullahi Ibrahim and Muhtari Abdullahi conspired and lured an 8 years old girl into an uncompleted building where they took turns to have unlawful carnal knowledge of her.
“Reacting to the unsavory development, Police operatives immediately launched a manhunt for the suspects and got them arrested. They have confessed to the crime.”
Nansel issued a stern warning to all criminal elements in the state, urging them to vacate the area without delay. He made it clear that once investigations are concluded at the State Criminal Investigation Department, the suspects will be promptly charged to court.
