Police in Abuja has arrested a 42-year-old man, identified as Moses Shadrack for allegedly defiling an 11-year-old girl at Pegni village, Kuje Area Council. Mr. Shadrack carried out the unholy act last Saturday evening in an uncompleted building at the community.
The accused, who was a security guard at an estate in the village, allegedly lured the girl with a token and took her inside one of the uncompleted buildings and defiled her.
The mother of the girl, who sold provisions in a kiosk, raised an alarm after she went in search of her daughter and discovered the man half naked inside the uncompleted building with her.
A mob, most of them commercial cyclists, got wind of the incident and almost lynched the accused but for the intervention of some elders. He was then taken to the police station at Kuje.
