Katsina: Wealth-seeking man rapes daughter on herbalist’s instruction
Residents of Rafin-Makadi Village in the Rimi Local Government Area of Katsina State were in shock following the arrest of a 30-year-old man, Aliyu Inusa, who allegedly had sex with his 14-year-old daughter, on the instruction of a herbalist, who assured him that doing so would bring him good luck.
The incident was said to have been reported to the police by the girl’s mother, Mariya.
The spokesman for the Katsina Police Command, DSP Gambo Isah, confirmed the incident to journalists on Thursday, saying that the man was already in the police custody while investigation had begun.
Mariya, it was learnt, allegedly caught her husband in the act one night after her daughter had told her of the father’s indecent act.
Aliyu was said to have confessed to the crime during interrogation by the police.
He reportedly informed investigators that he engaged in the act on the advice of a herbalist who assured him that doing so would bring him good luck.
Isah said, “The daughter informed the mother of the sex affairs with her father but she did not believe until she caught him having sex with their daughter.
“She reported the case to the police headquarters in the Rimi LGA and he was arrested.
“The girl was rushed to the General Hospital in the Rimi Local Government Area for medical attention. The case has been transferred to the state Criminal Investigation Department for further investigation.”
It was learnt that Aliyu would soon be arraigned in court.Punch
