Police said that they were shocked to hear a 5-year-old girl asking for a gun so that she could kill a man who raped her, police in Nigeria said.
Lagos Police said that the incident unfolded on Friday.
The man who was identified as 22-year-old Okafor, is being accused of dragging the girl into an unfinished building where he raped her.
The girl also suffered bruises all over her body after the suspect dragged her by the feet.
When the suspect was arrested, the girl asked the officer to give her a gun so she could shoot the suspect dead because he is not worthy to live among humans.
A psychologist confirmed that the child intended to murder the suspect. The suspect was charged with rape. The suspect will be brought before a magistrate’s court judge for a bail hearing.
