A man in Abuja has been arrested after reports that he had forceful sexual intercourse with a toddler.
Monday Godswill is said to have raped the 3-year-old girl after being found guilty of a previous rape.
The suspect is currently in the custody of the police in the Bwari area of the Federal Capital Territory.
According to a police officer at the Mpape police station, who declined to give his name due to the sensitivity of the case:
“the suspect has been involved in a rape case before as record showed that he was arrested and actually charged to court for raping a four-year-old girl before but unfortunately, he was set free after paying a fine of N3,000.
“What happened to the case and how the man was set free after paying just N3,000 is what I cannot understand but I believe he is going to be in trouble for this particular crime because he is dangerous to the society and needs to be kept away from the society for a long time.”
