This is becoming too much ….The operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps have arrested a 40-year-old man, Daniel Tahan-Gafera, for allegedly defiling an eight-year-old girl.The suspect was said to have also attempted to strangle his victim after having carnal knowledge of her in the Kurikyo area of the Lafia Local Government Area of the state.
The Benue State indigene was among six suspects paraded by the NSCDC Commander, Mr. Muhammud Gidado-Fari, on Tuesday in Lafia.
He explained that the arrest of the suspect followed a series of complaints by the parents of the victim, adding that his men ‘caught the suspect while trying to kill her.’
In an interview with Northern City News, Tahan-Gafera, however, denied trying to kill his victim, adding that he merely wanted to have sex with her. .
. “I had no intention of killing the girl, I only wanted to have sex with her,” he stated.
