“The father of the seven-year-old minor got to know about the incident when he noticed that the girl could not walk properly and also saw traces of blood on her clothe,” Afolabi said.

He added that the minor could not talk about the rape due to the threat by the suspect that she would be killed if she told anyone about it.
