A 23-year-old man, Audu Faskare, has reportedly defiled two minors, Maimuna (eight) and Saidatu (10) several times at Tunga area of Minna, Niger State. Faskare, who was apprehended at the weekend, was said to have raped the girls simultaneously.
Maimuna was said to have reported the incident to her parents after he had slept with the two girls at the same time on the same day. She said the weekend escapade was the second time the man forcibly had carnal knowledge of her. The first, according to her, happened when she was sent on an errand by her mother.
Explaining the weekend incident, Maimuna said she and Sadiatu met on the way when the man called them that he wanted to send them on an errand. But, according to her, on getting to his house, Faskare locked the door and asked them to strip and defiled them.
On her own part, Sadiatu said the Saturday incident was the fourth time the man forcibly had carnal knowledge of her. She said: “It all began a few months ago when I was going to school and he called me into his room saying he wanted to send me on an errand.
He then locked the door and told me to remove my clothes. “I refused but I was unable to scream because he shut my mouth and then raped me. This happened three consecutive times and I became used to it but last weekend incident was the first time he raped me and another person at the same time.”
