Vincent said, “I don’t have appetite to make love to grown up women; I prefer little girls to satisfy my sexual urge and enjoy doing that as long as I want it; each time I stopped, something would push me to do it again.”

The rape incident was confirmed by Muhammad Abubakar, the Police Public Relations Officer who also informed that the suspect was arrested by police operatives attached to Madalla Division.

The PPRO also noted that the suspect who had confessed to his crime would soon be charged to court.
