“The victim has been taken to the hospital where medical report confirmed that the girl has been carnally violated.” Oyeyemi said the Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, had ordered the immediate transfer of the suspect to Anti-Human Trafficking and Child Labour unit of the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) for proper investigation and prosecution.
