In his confessional statement to the Police, the suspect said he has raped a number of juveniles in his area and he was arrested after raping a 9-year-old girl whom he dragged into the bush to defile her, The Nation reports.
The victim’s father reported him to security agencies attached to the Kafin Koro Division of Paikoro Local Government Area.
Paraded in Minna, Yusuf “confessed” that he started defiling minors in his community when he was 17 years old, adding that a number of girls had fallen into his trap.
“I have been in the act and I enjoyed doing it,” he said. “I do it when I am aroused to have sex and since I do not have a girlfriend, I decided it would be easier to have carnal knowledge of minors in my area to cool off tension.
“It is quite unfortunate that I found myself in this hopeless act, I want to warn other teenagers to shun this wicked act. It may destroy their future.”
He also pleaded for forgiveness from the families of the girls he had defiled.
