In Katsina State, a 50-year-old man, Abdullahi Sani, has allegedly raped a three-year-old, Umma Ibrahim, to death. The incident, which occurred last week Thursday, took place in Jabiri, Funtua local council.
A statement from the police, signed by their spokesman in the state, DSP Gambo Isah, said Sani, also known as Mai’aya, had lured the girl into an uncompleted building.
It said the suspect then “forcefully had carnal knowledge” of the little girl, which led to her sustaining injuries. “She was rushed to the Funtua General hospital and later died the next day.”
The statement added that the suspect had confessed to the crime, and that investigation was ongoing in the matter.
