A 70-year-old man, Mohammed Sani Umar (Tela), has raped an eight-year-old girl in Chanchaga area of Minna, Niger State.
Umar raped the girl twice before giving her N80 not to tell anybody about the incident.
The mother of the girl noticed her abnormal behaviour, which made her question the girl before she revealed that the septuagenarian defiled her.
“She was sick for some weeks and after every treatment, she was still not very well. Then, a neighbour advised her mother to keep a close watch on the girl, which the mother started doing.
“After some days, she saw some stains in her underwear and asked her what happened to her.
“The little girl took the mother to his place and on reaching there, she just pointed at him.
“On sighting the woman and the girl, he started begging them to cover it up so he will take responsibility,” Abubakar, the girl’s uncle, narrated.
