The state commandant of NSCDC, Dr. Muhmmad Gidado, told newsmen in Dutse, yesterday, that the culprit ran away to neighbouring Niger Republic after committing the crime, abandoning his motorcycle.
He said his officers followed due process to effect his arrest in his hideout in Niger Republic.
The Jigawa NSCDC boss said investigation into the case was ongoing, adding that on completion, the suspect would be arraigned in court.
He vowed to bring to book anybody found committing rape in the state, describing it as a barbaric and animalistic behaviour.
He also warned those with the intention of committing rape to have a re- think, saying there was no hiding place for them in Jigawa State.
