The Chairman of All Progressive Congress (APC) in Obi Ward of Obi Local Government Area of Nasarawa State, Christopher Ogah, has been arrested for allegedly defiling two minors in his house.
According to an eyewitness, Oyikobi Ambassador, the minors were between the ages of 12 and 13.
Another source who preferred anonymity disclosed that the suspect lured the girls when they entered his house to fetch water from the well.
He alleged that it was not the first time that Christopher was arrested for rape.
Chairman of the local government, Alhaji Mohammad Oyimoga Oyigye, has, however, confirmed the incident. He revealed that, the suspect would have been lynched by angry youths if not for his intervention.
He said that he had since handed the suspect over to the police and was transferred to Lafia to forestall breakdown of law and order in the area.
Nasarawa State Commissioner of Police (CP), Mr. Bola Longe, said that he had directed that the case be transferred to State Criminal Investigation Department, (SCID) in Lafia, for a discreet investigation after which the suspect will be charged to court.
“The Police under my watch wants to warn would-be rapist to have a rethink or be prepared to face the wrath of the Law.
“I am assuring the public of the command’s commitment to arrest and prosecute anyone found wanting, no matter how highly placed,” the CP added.
