Reports suggest that a six-year-old girl who was allegedly raped to death had her body dumped in a mosque in Kaduna. The atrocity was committed by some yet-to-be-identified assailants.
This was confirmed by the Spokesperson of the Kaduna State police command, ASP Muhammed Jalige.
He stated that the body of the girl was discovered on Friday, June 26 after some community members called the Kurmi Mashi police division to make a report after seeing the dead body at the mosque.
In his submission, he said;
”Though no arrest has been made in connection to the crime, but police detectives attached to Kurmi Mashi division of the Command have launched an investigation to unravel the misery.
Yes, the case was reported at Kurmi Mashi division on Friday. Our men in that division received a call from the people in the community in Kurmi Mashi that they saw a dead body lying in the mosque. With the lockdown, they have not been opening mosques except for Friday prayers. They discovered the dead body around 3:20 pm close to prayer time.
An investigation into the matter has commenced. No arrest made so far. But police detectives attached to Kurmi Mashi are seriously on the issue.”
