She is my girlfriend, says suspect
The Nasarawa State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps has arrested one Mr Ahmed Muktar and two others for alleged abduction and rape of a 19-year-old girl.
The Public Relations Officer of the command, Jerry Victor, made the disclosure while parading the suspects on Tuesday in Lafia, the state capital.
He explained that officers of the command, after painstaking efforts, arrested three of the suspects involved in the crime, while the fourth suspect was at large.
Victor said, “Today, we are parading three suspects in connection with a case of abduction, molestation and rape. A complainant came to our office concerning the case, which has to do with his daughter. The incident, which concerns a driver, Ahmed Muktar, and his cronies, happened around Nyanya-Mararaba in the Karu Local Government Area.
“One of the suspects is still on the run, but we are doing our best to get him arrested, after which all the suspects will be charged to court.”
The victim said she was going to see a friend when she met Murkar, who was in a vehicle.
She said, “Muktar stopped me and convinced me that he would drop me off at my friend’s place. I entered his Sharon vehicle, then after a few minutes, I slept off only to find myself in an unknown location.
He took me to a place where I stayed for 21 days. He and some other guys had sex with me severally before he returned me to Lafia.”
Her father thanked the NSCDC for arresting the suspects and vowed to ensure the men faced the wrath of the law for the damage they did to his daughter.
Muktar, however, claimed that the teenager was his girlfriend and denied abducting her.
He said, “As a driver, I only helped her by giving her a lift. I admit to sleeping with her, but it was only once. She is my girlfriend and I did not abduct her.” ,,
