The Adamawa State Police Command has arrested Jafaru Adamu, a 36-year-old resident of Anguwar Diocese Kala’a in the Hong local government area of the state, for the alleged rape of a 21-year-old woman, who resides in the same neighbourhood and is the wife of one of his neighbours.
According to a statement by the spokesperson of the Adamawa State Police Command, SP Sulaiman Nguroje, the suspect seized the opportunity on the afternoon of August 15 to commit the heinous act while the survivor’s husband was absent.
“Investigation, so far reveals that the suspect was wearing a black face mask and also carried a knife which he used in threatening the victim to comply with his demands. Unfortunately while committing the act his mask fell off. He thereafter fled the crime scene through the window after the survivor recognized him,” Nguroje said
The statement further noted that the survivor’s husband reported the incident to the Divisional Police Headquarters in Kala’a.”Adamawa Police Nab 36-Year-Old for Alleged Neighbor’s Wife Rape”
“The Commissioner of police, CP Afolabi Babatola who frowns at ugly incident has directed officer in charge of Family support unit to take over investigation and ensure diligent prosecution. The Police Boss who empathise with the husband of the survivor over the unfortunate incident, equally calls on the members of the public to key into the Command’s effort in fighting to end all forms of Gender based violence,” the statement further noted
