The Niger State Police Command has apprehended a 35-year-old man, Clement Onuchukwu, for defiling two girls aged seven and eight years.
Onuchukwu of the Kwamba area, Suleja, was arrested following a complaint by the parents of the victims.
Northern City News gathered on Sunday that the father of three allegedly lured his victims with N50 to an uncompleted building and had sex with them several times.
The suspect told our correspondent that he got aroused whenever he saw underage girls in his neighbourhood.
He said, “I don’t know what has come over me; each time I see little girls in my area, I get aroused and I would want to have sex with them regardless of the fact that I am a father of three children.
“I have been into this wicked act for more than four years and it looks as if somebody had placed a curse on me; nothing works for me and at times, I felt I have sinned against my destiny.”
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Muhammad Abubakar, said the suspect admitted that he lured the minors to an uncompleted building on different occasions.
He added that Onuchukwu would be arraigned in court after investigation.
