According to reports, the suspect who subsequently confessed to the crime, said he had been having sexual urges for a while but didn’t have a girlfriend to perform the act with, which prompted him to have sex with the three-year-old daughter of his neighbour.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Abubakar who confirmed the incident, urged parents to monitor the movements of their children, especially minors, to prevent them from falling into wrong hands.

He said the suspect would soon be charged to court.
