used a White handkerchief to rub her private part, as well as all over her body.
It was a good Samaritan, who, unknown to the suspect, was watching the whole
incident that came to her rescue as she had become unconscious.
Upon the report, the DPO Sango division, CSP Godwin Idehai, detailed his
detectives to go after the suspect. He was subsequently traced and apprehended.
