19 Year Old Man Arrested For Raping His 13-Year-Old Cousin

A vigilance group in Rumuagholu, in the Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State, said it arrested a 19-year-old man for allegedly raping his 13-year-old cousin.

The group, Rumuagholu Security Planning and Advisory Committee, said the teenager would be handed over to the police for further action.

The RUSPAC Commander, Henry Amadi, who disclosed this to journalists in Port Harcourt, said his men also arrested two suspected drug peddlers and recovered some illicit drugs from them.

Amadi, who doubles as the community development committee chairman, said the suspects were arrested based on credible information.

He said the drug peddlers concealed the substances in a bag.

Amadi said, “I have four suspects here. One is a rape case which will be transferred to the police for an appropriate action. Then, two were involved in illicit drug peddling and intake. Those ones will be transferred to the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency.”

Meanwhile, the 19-year-old suspect denied the allegation.

He said, “I did not rape her. She used to come to my house, but I did not rape her. I can never lie to you. We used to play like dogs.”

A spokesman for the state police command, Nnamdi Omoni, said he would find out about the cases from the special area command and get back to our correspondent.

He had yet to do so as of the time of filing this report.
