Police on Wednesday in Niger arrested a 45-year-old-man, over alleged r*pe of his three-year-old step daughter. The suspect was arrested in Kundu, a village in Rafi Local Government Area of the state.

“It was after I chased him out that I heard my daughter, who was sleeping in the parlour, crying.
“I quickly ran to her only to see my husband abusing my daughter sexually.
“I am a breast feeding mother and I spend the whole of my day taking care of the children, yet my husband does not allow me to rest,” she told the agency in her statement.
Bawa alleged that she saw blood stained and semen on the girl’s body and informed her brother in-laws wife about the incident who advised her to take the girl to the hospital.
The Director-General of the agency, Hajiya Mariam Kolo, said that the victim would be treated in the hospital.
Kolo also said that the suspect would be charge to court in accordance with Section 18 of the Child Rights Law.
The Director-General described the act as ‘ungodly’, saying that the state government would no longer condone any form of violence against children and women.
