The statement said the father of the victim stated that his daughter, an elder sister to the victim, reported to him that her sibling was sexually abused by the suspect.
The statement partly read, “Upon questioning, the boy stated that he was taken to an isolated place in the evening while he was playing alongside his friends by the suspect who removed his trousers and had canal knowledge of him, and thereafter urged him not to tell anyone and promised to buy him sweets, a promise which he failed to fulfill and which made him expose the incident to his sister.
“Meanwhile, medical examinations conducted at Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC) at General Hospital Dutse shows repeated rectal penetrations and bruises in the anal area.
“Suspect has confessed to the crime and will be charged to court of competent jurisdiction to expedite justice.”
