A six-year-old girl, has been raped by a 17-year-old boy, Ibrahim Dikko, in Chaza, a village in Suleja local government area of Niger State.
She bled profusely after being raped and was rushed to a nearby clinic but was immediately referred to Suleja General Hospital due of the intensity of the injury she sustained.
When LEADERSHIP WEEKEND visited the general hospital, a day after the incident, it was told that she had been discharged and had returned to Chaza with her parents.
LEADERSHIP WEEKEND traced her to the village, where it met with the father, Saleh Abubakar, who said, a neighbour called his little girl and raped her, threatening to kill her if she discloses his name.
Abubakar explained that it was the bleeding that caught their attention, prompting them to rush her to a nearby hospital. He stated that the incident was immediately reported to the Suleja Emirate Council Security Corps and a police station in the area.
Saleh, who expressed fear that justice could be denied his daughter, showed LEADERSHIP WEEKEND the injuries he sustained while trying to save his daughter's life.
Alhaji Sule Badaru who is the commander of the Emirate voluntary security outfit said justice will take its full course, stressing, that was what prompted the immediate referral of the case to Division B police station.
At the police station, the divisional police officer (DPO), Mr. Ibrahim referred journalists to the state police headquarters.
