Two men were arrested on charges of kidnapping and rape after allegedly raping a young girl for three days, police in Nigeria said.

Zamfara State Police said that they arrested 25-year-old Hamza Musa, and 18-year-old Lawali Sarki, after being accused of kidnapping and raping the 12-year-old girl.

Both defendants face two counts of rape and kidnapping. Prosecutors told a court that a neighbor of the men reported the incident to police.

According to police, while the girl was on her way home from shopping, the two defendants conspired with two other men to abduct and rape the child. The other two men are still at large.

The men took her to a house where they kept her for three days. The defendants pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Both are being held without bail.
