UPDATE: Police Nabs Man Who Allegedly Raped, Impregnated 10-Year-Old Nigerian Orphan In Benue

The Benue State Poice Command on Wednesday said they have arrested an 18-year-old man, Terna Taga, who allegedly raped and impregnated a 10-year-old orphan named Masenengen Targba.

Taga was alleged to have raped the minor who was at an Internally Displaced Persons camp in Benue.

Recall that the victim was dumped in a General Hospital, Makurdi by an unknown person in the early hours of Sunday, August 4, 2019. She was in so much pain as it was time to have her baby, but surgery needed to be carried out and she could not afford it.

Upon interrogation, it was discovered that she is an orphan from the Tiv ethnic group in Benue state, but has been living in an Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) Camp located in Benue State. It is in the camp that she was raped and impregnated.

Eventually, a good samaritan named Mr. Ukan Kurugh took her to Foundation Memorial Hospital, Makurdi, Benue State, where Doctors Ijoko and Yima carried out an operation to deliver her of her daughter in the early hours of today, August 5 (read the rest of the story Here).

Spokesperson of the command, DSP Catherine Anene, who confirmed the development to newsmen on Wednesday, said that the suspect was arrested in North Bank on Tuesday evening and is in custody for further investigations.
