The Jigawa State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC), Thursday, arrested four persons, Abdullahi Rabiu, 28, Auwalu Idris, 41, Nazifi Abba, 25 and 18-year-old Abu Zaid Yusu, in Taura Local Government Area of the state, for committing sodomy with a 16-year-old boy identified as Umar Sani.
Reports say the victim lodged a complaint with the State Command of NSCDC because according to him, he could no longer stand the abuse from the quartet. The State Commandant of the NSCDC, Dr.
Muhammed Gidado, said the victim reported that the four men had been abusing him sexually for over 2 years at different locations and he could not even tell his parents because of fear following the threats over his life.
Gidado further explained that report of the young boy was verified when he was taken to a hospital for medical examination, adding that the result proved that he had been abused sexually. Similarly, he said the suspects were arrested by NSCDC officers, adding that after hours of interrogation, the quartet admitted to have committed the crime. They however, pleaded with the officers to forgive and let them go, saying it was the work of the devil.
As the story goes, the Commandant disclosed that the command had already taken the four suspects to a Magistrate’s Court in Kiyawa Local Government Area for prosecution. Gidado condemned the act and reportedly warned that anyone who indulged in such acts would be made to face the wrath of the law, irrespective of their personality or position. He further stated that such evil acts had no place in Jigawa State.
