Two suspects have been taken into custody by the Adamawa State Police Command’s agents for allegedly engaging in a criminal conspiracy, assault and raping a 35-year-old mentally disabled woman.
The suspects are Imamu Abdulrahman, 21, and Kwallan John, 23, both of the Dirma community of Dumne Development Area in the Song LGA.
On June 19, 2022, the two allegedly planned to violently have sex with the insane woman inside an unfinished structure in Dirma.
The suspects were detained by the police in Dumne after receiving a report from one Simon D. Adamu, according to a statement made by the command’s image maker, SP Suleiman Yahaya Nguroje on Friday.
A 34-year-old man named Dauda Idris was also detained by the men of the Command for sexually assaulting two youngsters in the Jiddel hamlet of the Michika LGA.
Nguroje claims that the accused and the Jiddel, Jiddel-born cab driver raped the young girls on June 20, 2022, when their parents were away.
Following a tip from Magret Dali, the mother of one of the victims, Dauda was apprehended by the police in Michika.
An investigation of the Assault has thus far shown that the suspects repeatedly violated the young girls, threatening to kill them if they spoke out, according to Police.
The CP, S. K. Akande, has ordered a covert probe into the cases, according to SP Nguroje, who also asked parents to provide for their children’s needs.
