According to him, on March 31, 2018 at about 3:00pm, the suspect was returning to the house from work and upon reaching Goaso SDA school, he saw the victim playing with her colleagues.

He said the suspect then lured her into one of the classrooms and sexually abused her and after the act, asked the victim to go out.

While the victim was on her way home, she met a police officer and narrated her ordeal to the police leading to the arrest of the suspect.

The victim was then taken to Goaso Government Hospital for treatment and was discovered that she sustained injuries in her private part as a result of the forced penetration.
