In what may be the most incredulous news of the week, two boys, aged 7 and 10, were arrested for allegedly raping and killing a 1-year-old girl.
A report by the Cameroonian publication, CIR, states that the two boys dragged the girl into a pit latrine after raping her and plummeted her to death with sticks and other objects.

The sad and equally shocking incident happened in Ndian Division of Kumbe Balindo in the South West Region of Cameroon.
However, a local traditional ruler has disagreed with the report, claiming it cannot be true.
The traditional ruler opined to the CIR that the two boys were too young to get an erection hard enough to "damage" the vagina of the little girl as shown in medical reports.
Some locals have agreed with the ruler, asserting that it some ritualists are trying to pin the hideous crime on the two youngsters in an attempt to hide a ritual crime.
