Eniola Awokoya

A 50-year old man, identified as Mohammed Abdullahi, has admitted to sodomising four underage boys under his tutelage.

Abdullai from Wushishi Local Government Area of Niger State, reportedly migrated from Kebbi State,  and has no wife.

According to reports, the suspect, allegedly induces his victims with sweets, biscuits and other snacks.

He was said to have been exposed when one of his victims became ill and confessed to his parents the supposed cause of his stomach pains.

A victim’s father, Shehu Musa, reported the matter to a vigilance group which arrested the suspect and handed him over to the police in Zungeru, but the case was subsequently taken over by the Child’s Rights Agency.

One of the victims said Abdullahi forcefully had carnal knowledge of him when he slept at his house, adding that he resisted his advances and also threatened to expose him.

The Director General of the Niger State Child’s Rights Agency, Mariam Kolo, described  the case as “disturbing, nasty and dehumanising.”

Kolo said the agency, had to take over the investigation because it was a rape case, adding that the suspect was still in the police custody and would be handed over to the state Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, for investigation and prosecution.

She said it was disturbing that the victims were afraid to tell their parents because of the fear of being punished, cautioning parents to stop being harsh on their children.
