A man was arrested and charged with rape and assault for raping a toddler, police in Nigeria said.

Osun Police said that they arrested 29-year-old Akeem Ibrahim on Friday, after being accused of raping a two-year-old girl.

Now, a Magistrate’s Court judge remanded the suspect into custody due to the severity of the crime.

Prosecutors said that they charged Ibrahim with rape and assault.

Recently, a 13-year-old boy was arrested after he raped his 8-year-old sister, according to police in the United Kingdom.

The boy allegedly has admitted to raping his sister after seeing adult videos on an Xbox.

The boy told Lancashire Police that he watched the graphic videos on his game console with a friend and “decided to try it.”

He explained that he had chosen his younger sister because she was small and “couldn’t remember stuff.”

The young teen appeared before a judge in the Blackburn Magistrate’s Court, where he was charged with indecent assault on the girl and to forcing her to perform an indecent act on him.

The boy was released on bail and is living with relatives. He was ordered to stay away from his sister.
