    Raping 8 years old? Shocking, this bring me to the point that, all claims of raping had proved itself. Inspector by law years old is not a child, so don’t confused the legal process. Warrap reputation well known over the country. Please stop recruiting children into army, they will grew up into adulthood with such behaviour. he possess a gun and assumed the world is revolving around him.
