Securityman arrested for impregnating 16yrs old girl in Abuja

A 21-year-old security guard, identified as John, is in police custody for allegedly impregnating a 16-year-old girl in Gwarimpa. The suspect, who used to work near the victim’s residence on 2nd Avenue, Gwarinpa, was said to have confessed to impregnating the girl.

The girl’s mother became suspicious of her daughter’s behaviour and confronted her but she denied being pregnant. A source said when the girl was put under pressure, she admitted she was pregnant and that the security guard was responsible.

“The mother took her to hospital where it was confirmed that the girl was 6 months pregnant.

“The girl’s family reported the guard to the police who arrested him for impregnating a minor,” the source said.

Gwarimpa Divisional Police Officer, CSP Nuruddeen Sabo said the case is still under investigation.

"It is a r*pe case as the suspect confessed but we are trying to see how they can reconcile amicably."
