A 20-year-old boy, Isaac Boniface, has just confessed to the rape of the 4-year-old daughter of his co-tenant in Jos, Plateau State.
The suspect admitted that he knew the incident was a devilish act, but that “It was a mistake.”
According to him:
“I live in the same compound with the girl and her mother. Anytime I’m going to work or passing by, the girl will greet me and I will greet her back because we are friends.
So, one day, I took her to a corner in the compound and raped her. The mother later told me to follow her to somewhere and that is how I was arrested by the police.”
The State Commissioner of Police, Mr Issac Akinmoyede, condemned the act and said Isaac would be charged to court soon.
