One Dansale Magaji has been arrested by police for allegedly raping his seven-month old stepdaughter, Hauwa Ibrahim.
The baby was said to have been raped about a week ago after which she was admitted on Wednesday to the Turai Yar’Adua Maternity and Children Hospital, Katsina, upon referral from the General Hospital, Malumfashi where doctors confirmed that the baby was raped.
The baby’s father, Ibrahim Nuhu, revealed that the rape was committed at Dangaski village in the Musawa LGA of the state. According to him, the baby’s mother, Zinai and him were separated.
The incident blew open according to him when sometime last week, Zinai approached him complaining that the baby had piles which had resulted in bleeding in her private part and anus.He therefore took the baby to the General Hospital, Malumfashi where the doctors examined her and insisted that the police should be invited as it was a rape case and not piles as claimed by the mother.
The baby’s anus and vagina were said to have been injured due to forceful penetration. Hauwa was consequently referred to the children hospital for further treatment while the police were called in.
Recalling the incident, Zinai said that sometime last week, she woke up to find traces of blood and water in the baby’s private parts. According to her, she assumed that the baby had piles. “The following day after I made the observation, Magaji gave me some clothes to wash, including trousers stained with blood and semen,” she added.
Police sources in Katsina said Magaji had already been arrested in connection with the incident. The Katsina State Police Command spokesman, DSP Isah Gambo, confirmed the incident, saying the issue would be addressed at a press conference on Friday (today) by the police commissioner, Usman Abdullahi.
