The Niger State police command has arrested a 23-year-old man, Adamu Mohammed, for allegedly having sexual intercourse with six under-aged boys through the anus.
Suspect, Adamu Mohammed,
Mohammed was said to have been having regular sexual intercourse with the male children for a long time until he met his waterloo
He was nabbed by the police following a tip off. The incident occoured at inat Korokpa in Chanchaga Local Government Area of Niger State.
The suspect, who admitted having sexual intercourse with the boys, was trailed and picked up by police operatives attached to Chanchaga Division based on a tip-off while trying to escape to an unknown destination.
Investigations showed that in September, a man, Yusuf Buhari, of the same address, reported to police that Mohammed lured his 10-year-old son, Luka Jonathan, into his room and had sexual intercourse with him through his anus.
Other victims are Safari (12), Patrick (10), Donald (12), Yakubu (11) and Pius (10), all of the same address. It was learnt that Mohammed, who migrated from Jigawa State, has no wife and has been involved in the act for over two years.
Further checks revealed that he has been having regular sexual intercourse with the male children for a long time until he met his waterloo.
Mohammed told our correspondent that he was into this heinous act because his girlfriend left him and no other girl was willing to have sex with him, then he resorted to taking the advantage of under-aged boys in his area.
He said: “My girlfriend and I separated long time ago because of her constant denial of sex. Since then, I have no girlfriend. Even when I made effort to get one it didn’t work. I decided to be making love to under-aged boys in my area.
“I enjoy sleeping with those little boys since I cannot impregnate them. I have been doing it for a long time and I find it extremely difficult to leave because it has become part of me.”
Asked whether he was having sexual intercourse with under-aged boys for ritual purposes, Mohammed said he was doing it to have sexual satisfaction since his girlfriend deserted him.
The suspect also confessed giving his victims sweets, soft drinks and biscuits after sodomising them as gratification but regretted his action.
Confirming the incident yesterday, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Muhammad Abubakar, described the case as disturbing, nasty and dehumanising, adding that the suspect was caught in the act.
He said: “We need to build the confidence of the children so that they can tell their parents anything or any challenges they are facing at any time.
“It is unfortunate and sad that a child will face sort of situation without telling the parents.”
Abubakar disclosed that the matter would be charged to court after investigation
