The Kaduna State command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has arrested a 38-year-old man for allegedly sexually abusing three of his under-aged nieces.
A statement by the acting spokesman of the corps in the state, ASC II Usman Masallachi Shuaibu, said the victims aged 12, 9, and 6 years, were sexually abused by their uncle at their residence along Katuru road in Kaduna North LGA.
The suspect, Idris Musa, a commercial driver in the metropolis confessed during investigation to have on several occasions abused his nieces sexually by inserting his fingers into their private parts, Shuaibu said.
“He also confessed that on one occasion, he tried to have intercourse with one of the minors.
“The children also said that their uncle had indulged in the act for a long time but cautioned them never to tell anyone. But as the nefarious act persisted, one of the victims, suffering from pains and was walking abnormally, attracted the attention of one of their aunties.
“One of the victims further revealed that their uncle usually lured them into the obnoxious act by sending them on errands and thereafter giving them tips on return,” the statement read.
