Damaturu – The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Yobe has decried the increasing cases of rape, indecency and breach of trust in the state.
The NSCDC Commandant in the state, Dr Muhammed Fari, made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Damaturu on Monday.
Fari said the command recorded more cases of rape, indecency and criminal breach of trust in the last three months, than what it had in the previous year.
He said the command had charged several suspects to court for contravening sections 283, 285 and 312 of the Penal Code.
The commandant said one of the rape cases involved defilement of a six-month-old baby by a 40-year-old deaf and dumb man, Shaaibu Danladi, in Potiskum.
He said medical report indicated that the baby sustained tear in her vagina down to her anus and was undergoing medical treatment at the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital.
Fari said “the case no: YBS/PT/CMCII/091c/2016 suffered set back due to lack of a sign language expert at the court to communicate with the deaf and dumb suspect.”
He said other rape cases were also recorded in Damaturu with the suspects charged in a Magistrates’ Court in Damaturu.
Fari said that the command arrested and charged many people for alleged criminal conspiracy and criminal breach of trust in Damaturu, Potiskum and Nangere.
