The Kano State Police Command has arrested a pastor, Samuel John, of Whether-Head in Sabon Gari, Kano, for allegedly serially raping 13-year-old twin sisters and their 11-year old sister.
The police spokesperson in the state, Magaji Majiya, told newsmen that the pastor was arrested after the parents and neighbours of the victims reported his alleged randy act.
The police expressed concern over the rising incidence of rape in the state, “despite multiple efforts by the police, sister security agencies, non-governmental organisations and relevant stakeholders.”
The PPRO lamented that the police had received 34 cases of rape in month of August.
He cited some of the cases, including one involving a 40-year old man, Nuruddeen Abubakar, of Unguwa Uku Quarters, Kano who allegedly raped his 14-year old daughter and made her have abortion three times.
