“I saw her in front of my shop crying that she misplaced N100 out of the money she sold from pure water and I gave her the N100.

“The following time I saw her hawking, I called her to buy water but the devil lured me into the act."

32-year-old Ayuba told the Niger State Child Right Protection Agency while describing how he lured an 8-year-old pupil.

“I am sorry to have engaged in such an act with a little girl, I promise never to repeat such act again, please forgive me,” Salihu pleaded.

Narrating her ordeal, the victim said that the suspect lured her into his shop while hawking pure water and forcefully dragged her to a deserted area and raped her.

“He called me that he wanted to buy pure water, after buying the water, he held my hand and told me that we should go and flirt.

“I told him no, but he forcefully dragged me to a lonely area and brought out his male organ and penetrate me.

“He has had carnal knowledge of me five times and after the act, sometimes he would give me N10, N50, and N100 and warned me not to tell anyone or else, he would deal with me,” the girl said.

The Director-General of the agency, Mairam Kolo, said that the suspect would be handed over to the police for further investigation.
