Suspected rapist, not our member – Bauchi Security Committee

The Bauchi state Peace and Security Committee (BSPSC) on Monday dissociated itself from an alleged rapist, saying the suspect was not its member as insinuated by a Non-Government Organisations in the state.

It would be recalled that the suspect, a middle-aged man (names withheld), was apprehended recently for allegedly raping a five-year old girl in Ungwar Hardo community of Bauchi metropolis.

In a statement signed by Spokesperson  of BSPSC, Ibrahim Yila, the Committee said   the accussed person was not, and had never been its member.

It said considering the heinous nature of the crime, there was need to clarify the matter as there was no member of BSPSC bearing the name of the accused.

The statement emphasised that earlier reports in some sections of the media associating the accussed person with the committee, was misguided.

“We therefore call on the security agencies to further investigate and prosecute the suspect, irrespective of his social status.

“We are also calling on the media as partners  in progress, to always check their facts before going to the press, “it advised.
