The Kaduna State Police Command is now on the hunt for a group of unknown men who raped a 6-year-old girl to death in Mararaban Jos, Igabi Local Government Area of the state.
The incident was confirmed by the founder of Arridah Relief Foundation, Hajiya Rabi Salisu, who said that the girl was buried at 6:15 pm on Monday, May 17, according to Islamic rites.
“A doctor has confirmed that the girl was raped through her anus and she eventually bled to death. After an examination, it was discovered that the victim had been subjected to forceful anal sex which leads to her death,” said Hajia Salisu.
“Even though the girl’s parents said they have forgiven the ill done to their daughter for fear of stigmatization, my foundation has taken up the matter and it is being investigated. We have reported the matter to the police and they have commenced an investigation.” she added.
Reports say that the girl went missing around 4.30 pm on Sunday, May 16, while playing with other children at a neighbour’s compound.
Her parents, relatives and neighbours started searching for her but all efforts to locate her proved abortive.
She was later found dead at 8 pm in a bush, with injuries on her mouth, nose and anus.
