Three nurses were arrested on a charge of rape after allegedly sexually assaulting a 6-year-old girl over a period of several months, police in Nigeria said.

Edo State police said that they arrested 26-year-old Egbai Kenneth, 22-year-old Paul Aghama, and 21-year-old Osemwegie Jeffery, after being accused of luring the girl to their dormitory and sexually assaulting her.

The nursing students were still studying at a school when the abuse allegedly occurred. Some of the incidents unfolded on the premises of the school.

The suspects also used nails to rape the victim. All three suspects were charged with two counts of rape. Bail was set at N300,000 ($1,507) each.

In August, a nurse and three men were arrested on a charge of rape after allegedly gang raping a drunk girl at a party, police in Zimbabwe said.

Bulawayo police said that they arrested the 37-year-old nurse along with three other men, aged between 24 and 27, after being accused of getting the 14-year-old girl drunk and raping her on Thursday.

The 37-year-old married nurse works at the Mpilo Central Hospital. According to the police investigation, the girl was invited to the party by one of her friends.

After the men plied her with alcohol, she was taken to a bedroom, where she was repeatedly raped. The girl later told her parents what happened and they called the police.
