According to the police, the man lured the girl to a hotel in Nasarawa Local Government Area of the state, where he had canal knowledge of her.

The police statement also indicated that two people “disguised as vigilantes, collected phones and raped two female students of Bingham University, Karu” on December 12, 2016.
