Kebbi -  The Police Command in Kebbi on Wednesday arrested two suspected rapists(names withheld) after an intensive search following growing cases of rape in the state recently.

The command said the first suspect was arrested for allegedly raping a woman (name withheld) in Birnin Kebbi while the second raped a 14-year-old school girl  in Yauri Local Government Area.

The Police Public Relation's Officer (PPRO) of the command, Mr Chuku Ikechukwu, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Birnin Kebbi.

He said the first suspect, a resident of Birnin Kebbi, carried out the assault when he offered his victim a ride in his vehicle.

According to Ikechukwu the rape victim reported the case to the police through the effort of her mother in January.

He said the victim told the police that after he lured her into an uncompleted building in Gungun Sarki area, ``he had canal knowledge of me without my consent.''

"The rape victim had been admitted in hospital in Yauri for treatment," the PPRO said.

He said the accused persons would soon be arraigned in court, while investigations were still being conducted.

According to him, the growing cases of rape in the area is embarrassing and advised parents to be wary of the movements and companies of their daughters as a preemptive measure.
