A 27 year-old man, Ibrahim Usabatu has been arrested by the police in Nasarawa State for sexually abusing three of his under-age cousins in Tudun Abu area of Lafia Local Government Area of the state.

Usabatu, who is a herbalist, had been sleeping in a mosque before he was accommodated by his victims’ family in Tudun Abu.

One of the parents, who spoke on condition of anonymity said she had for long suspected that Usabatu was having sexual intercourse with her daughter.

She said: “One fateful day when I saw my daughter, I started suspecting something between the two of them; in fact, I had been trailing him for some months.

“If we are inside the house, he would come outside and if we are outside, he would remain inside pretending to be teaching the kids lessons.

The mothers of the victims and their father called on the police to ensure that justice was done on the matter.
