A 20-year-old Isaac Boniface who was arrested for the rape of a 4-year-old girl has said he “mistakenly” raped the girl in his compound one morning.
“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.”
Isaac Boniface, a resident of forest community of Riyom Local Government Area of Plateau State, was among the 25 suspects paraded by the Police in Plateau State yesterday, March 18, for various criminal activities.
While speaking to newsmen, Boniface said he knew his action was devilish but that “It was a mistake”.
The State Police Commissioner, Issac Akinmoyede told journalists that the suspect will be charged to court as soon as possible.
