He, however, said that two firearms and two live ammunitions were equally recovered by the police command during the operations.

According to him, “on April 13, 2022, at about 14.15 hours, a complaint lodged by one Dimka Sarki that on April 8, 2022, his daughter was lured by one Bako Anjeh of Angam village, in Akun Development Area of Nasarawa Eggon, to his room and tried to have unlawful carnal knowledge of her.

“When she refused, he (Dimka Sarki) forcefully gave her pesticide (Gramazole); a chemical substance used in killing grasses to drink which made her weak then proceeded and had carnal knowledge of her.

“Upon receipt of the complaints, police operatives attached to Akwanga Area Command swiftly moved to the place and got the suspect (Dimka Sarki) arrested.”
