An unnamed man has been arrested in Jos Plateau state for raping his three year old daughter.
The man was said to have perpetrated the act while the child’s mother prepared food for the family in the outside kitchen of their home.
According to reports, the child’s mother returned to the room midway through cooking to get more ingredients, only to find her husband raping their 3-year-old child. She called out for help, after which the neighbours intervened and removed the man from the premises.
Hadiza’s father was taken to the Katako Police state yesterday.
The child rapist was saved upon timely intervention of the police as a mob had already gathered to carry out jungle justice.
The victim is reportedly being taken care of while her father is being held at the Katako Police Station in Jos. A non-governmental organisation called Voice of the Girl Child has reportedly taken up the case to ensure that the rapist is charged and tried.
