The Adamawa State police command has arrested a 70-year-old father of three for raping two pupils in the Yola-North Local Government Area of the state.

The Command’s spokesman, SP Suleiman Nguroje, disclosed this in a statement on Saturday in Yola.

He said that the survivors were four- and seven-year-olds and residents of Ajiya Street, Jimeta.

According to the statement, the Commissioner of Police, CP Afolabi Babatola has ordered a thorough and clinical investigation into the crime.

“Adamawa state police command, on April 4, apprehended a 70-year-old man for raping two minors at Jimeta, Yola North local government area.

“The suspect is said to have lured the two victims into his room, a close distance from the victims, and took advantage of them while on their way to a lesson class and had unlawful carnal knowledge of them.

“The incident was reported to the Divisional Police Headquarters, Jimeta, by the father of the victims, having observed unusual pains from the kids while urinating,” he stated.

Nguroje further stated that preliminary investigation so far reveals that the suspect is a father of three and now living alone after he separated from his wife 10 years ago.

He added that the CP expressed worry over the unfortunate incident, and directed the Officer in charge of the Family support unit of the State CID to take over the investigation and ensure diligent prosecution.

He advised members of the public, particularly parents, to be very watchful of their kids against criminal-minded elements who are roaming about seeking whom to take advantage of and report suspicious characters to the Police.

He equally called on the General public, especially parents to key into the Command’s Fight against all forms of Gender-Based Violence and promised to prosecute perpetrators in accordance with the extant laws.
