Speaking to the media, The Commandant of the Corps, Mr Abdullahi Ibrahim disclosed that the suspects were a 20-year-old man and a 17-year-old girl. He said the pair were arrested after they were seen engaged in the illicit activity by men of the Civilian Joint Task Force who promptly informed the NSCDC.
