The coordinator of Babajo Foundation, Haj Sadiya Suleiman who was at the scene said that the rape and killing of the girl was “very sad and evil.”

When contacted the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) for the Kaduna State Police Command, ASP Muhammed Jalige confirmed the incident.

The PPRO further added that though no arrest was made in connection to the crime, police detectives attached to Kurmin 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 a 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. So, if there is an arrest, I will keep you posted,” he said.
