Police in Kano have arrested six persons for allegedly raping a 16-year-old in Kano.
The Command’s Public Relations Officer, DSP Magaji Majiya, disclosed this yesterday in an interview with the newsmen in Kano.
He said the suspects, all youths, were apprehended at Kawon Alhaji Sani area in Kano metropolis on Thursday night.
He said the suspects allegedly took their victim and her friend to a room where they raped her one after the other.
He said the other girl (friend of the victim) was, however, lucky as the suspects were not able to rape her before some good Samaritans raised an alarm.
He said following a report to police, the command swung into action and arrested all the six suspects on Thursday night. Majiya said the victim was still receiving treatment at the hospital.
He said the state police commissioner, Mr. Maigari Dikko, has ordered a thorough investigation into the matter, while the suspects would remain in police pending the completion of the investigation.
He said as soon as investigation was completed, the suspects would be charged to court.
