According to the Police First Information Report (FIR), the defendant (a 15-year-old boy), came out of the bush, disguising himself as a mad man, and met the girls swimming in the stream.

He reportedly started chasing the five girls, but the victim of the girls fell down and while the four other girls escaped, the defendant caught up with the victim.

The FIR also said that the matter was reported at the Oro-Ago police station by the victim’s father, Musa Mohammed and it was subsequently transferred to the Anti Human Trafficking Women and Children Protection Unit for discreet investigation.

The Presiding Magistrate, Mr O.A. Adeniyi granted the request of the prosecutor and ordered that the underage defendant be remanded at the state government Children reformation Center, Ilorin.

The matter was later adjourned till August 31.
