An enraged wife’s scream has exposed the alleged rape of a minor by her 42-year-old husband, Ahmadu Idris,
Idris had allegedly asked his victim, a 13-year-old seller of wrappers, to take the wares to his wives in his house for them to make their choices.
According to father of the teenage girl, Musa Abubakar, the girl took the wrappers to the man’s house, not knowing that the wives were not at home.
Abubakar said the man trailed his daughter and pounced on her the moment they arrived the house, threatening to kill her if she shouted.
The man’s luck ran out, however, because the younger wife on whose bed he took her to suddenly returned to the house and caught the man in the act.
