A security man has been arrested in Abuja after his boss accused him of defiling his 3-year-old daughter and recorded it on his (security man) cell phone.
The suspect simply identified as Zubeiru(pictured) allegedly perpetrated the heinous act and got exposed about two weeks later.
Police said the 60-year-old lent his phone to his boss’ housemaids who approached him to borrow them. They had planned to watch a television programme on it but were confronted with pictures of Zubeiru sexually abusing their boss’ three-year-old daughter.
According to the victim’s mother, “I really cannot believe that this old man can do this kind of thing to my child because he works as our security man. I really do not like his attitude as a person because of the way he behaves. He sometimes acts like one that is mentally unstable and on several occasions, I had warned him to stop giving sweets to my children.
“I remember that some two weeks ago, my daughter complained of pains after urinating. I examined her and noticed something unusual, but not much to raise my suspicion.
“But I recall asking her if anybody touched her, but as a little child, she did not tell me anything and I did not in my wildest imagination think that a man touched her, so I just treated her and forgot about it. I never suspected this kind of expensive joke.”
She said that: “On the day they brought the phone to me, it was very early in the morning, I had not woken up, but they kept knocking on my door asking to see me. They narrated how they borrowed the handset from the guard the previous night.
“I got so mad after watching the clip that I wanted to fight him, but my husband advised me not to act harshly because that would make him run away and it would be difficult for us to arrest him.”
