Her words, “I felt relaxed because Dauda Mohammed is my father’s friend. If I had known that he had a devilish plan towards me I wouldn’t have gone there.”

Meanwhile, the suspect reportedly admitted later that he actually committed the act but has vowed to marry the under-aged girl.

Similarly, Mr. Victor noted that a 20-year-old man, Haruna Mohammed, was also arrested for raping and impregnating a 13-year-old girl on Layin Kaji Street in Lafia.
