A 20-year-old man, Abdullateef Ibrahim, has revealed that he enjoyed raping children because his girlfriend left him.
Abdullahi was arrested by the Niger State Police Command in Nasko, on Sunday, after he allegedly raped a five-year-old girl. It was reported that the suspect dragged the girl to an isolated place and had sex with her while on an errand for her mother.
He said: “Since my girlfriend left, I have been in the act and I enjoyed doing it, but at times I will ask myself ‘why am I into this mess and the urge still continues.
“It is quite unfortunate that I found myself in this hopeless predicament.”
The suspect also said that he had forced himself on more than six underage girls in the community.
Muhammad Abubakar, the State Police Public Relations Officer, said the suspect, who confessed to the crime during interrogation, has been charged to court.
He added that the victim has been taken to the General Hospital in Magama for treatment.
