A 49-year-old man, Baba Idi has allegedly raped a teenager to death in Kano.
The girl was his neighbour’s daughter, Khadija Adam.
Father of the deceased, Adam Muhammad, who confirmed the development to newsmen, said the suspect threatened to kill the teenage girl if she told anybody.
He said his wife got wind of the incident when she was to bathe their daughter and noticed blood coming out from her private parts.
He said: “I was not at home on that fateful day. Her mother, while bathing her, saw blood coming out from her body.
“When she asked her what happen to her, she mentioned our neighbour, Idi, known as Baba Idi.
“She pleaded with her mother not to tell anyone because the suspect threatened to kill her using scissors, if she told anybody.
“This is an act of inhumanity for a neighbour to commit this act. All I need is justice,” Adam demanded.
He said the matter is before the police and was yet to hear anything from them which could not be unconnected with the public holiday.
He stated that he will go to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID), Bompai with a view to knowing the next step and line of action.
Contacted, the spokesperson, Kano Police Command, SP Abdullahi Haruna, said he was still waiting to get details of what transpired from the relevant desks.
