A 55-year old man, Abdulraheem Jimoh, has been arrested for allegedly defiling a 12-year old girl at Mayegun area of Alagbado, Ilorin.
The suspect was arrested by the Kwara Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC).
NSCDC Public Relations Officer, Babawale Zaid, while parading the suspect on Tuesday at the state command, said Jimoh lured the minor into his shop with N100 and had carnal knowledge of her.
The 55-year-old then threatened to kill her if she revealed what happened to anyone.
Zaid regretted that such an incident had been on the rise across the states of the federation.
The spokesman told reporters that the suspect would be charged to court soon
