Child Sexual Abuse- 26 year-old Man Remanded in court for Raping an 11 year-old Girl

the rampant increase of sexual abuse of young female children is going way out of hand.
A  Makurdi Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday remanded an applicant, Daniel Iorkua, 26, of Nyon
Layout, Gboko Road, Makurdi in prison custody for allegedly raping an 11-year old girl.

The Prosecuting Police Officer, Insp. Moses Akoo, told the court that one Terna Fakaa had reported the case at the Police State Criminal Investigation Department, Makurdi on Sept. 20.
He said that the complainant stated that the accused, who was his neighbour, forcefully had sexual intercourse with his 11-year old ward.

“The complainant further reported that the victim told him that the accused person had used his hand to cover her mouth during the act to prevent her from shouting for help.”

The prosecutor said that the offence contravened Section 284 of the Penal Code.
The court did not take the plea of the accused for want of jurisdiction.
