A 15-year-old boy has been arrested by the police for allegedly defiling two minors of the same parents in Byazhin Across, Kubwa, Abuja. The suspect, a school leaver, was said to have defiled the minors, nine and eight years old, while organising lessons for them.
City News gathered that the younger brother to the suspect had warned the victims to be wary of his brother who normally fondles children’s behind.
The source said the victims had made jest of the suspect based on the advice given to them by his brother, an action the suspect frowned at.
“He even threatened to throw them inside a well if they refused to desist from making jest of him,” the source said.
The source alleged that the suspect who later engaged the minors in after school lessons, took advantage of the teaching period to to molest them sexually.
“He targeted when the parents were away and fingered the privates of each of the kids before the actual defilement took place,” the source alleged.
The source said luck ran out on the suspect when the aunt to the victims noticed a discharge in their private parts while she was bathing them and quickly alerted the parents.
The source, however, said the victims refused to tell their parents what had happened to them, having been threatened by the suspect not to tell anybody.
City News learnt that the parents took them to a hospital where they were confirmed to have been defiled,” the source added.
Confirming the incident, the Area Commander, Kubwa Area Command Headquarters, ASP Arungwa Nwuzue, said the suspect had been arrested, while investigation was on.
