Following a thorough search, the victim was found in the suspect’s custody in Anguwan Arewa, Gaya LGA, Kano State while medical examination revealed that the victim was two months pregnant.

The victim confessed that she was coerced into drinking a medicinal concoction, which rendered her unconscious and vulnerable to the perpetrator’s actions.

The PPRO stated that already, the State CID has already launched an investigation into the incident.

The Commissioner of Police, CP Garba Ahmed, has reiterated the Command’s commitment to combating gender-based violence (GBV) and related crimes.

Notably, the Command has achieved significant success in tackling these heinous crimes, which often leave victims with severe physical and emotional trauma.

In this vein, the Commissioner of Police urged parents, guardians, and community leaders to be vigilant about the relationships their wards have with others, as perpetrators are often close relatives, neighbors, or acquaintances.

He called on stakeholders to join forces in combating GBV, which has far-reaching consequences for the well-being and development of the girl child and society at large.

The Command then assured that perpetrators would face the full weight of the law.
