A 40-year-old man identified as Usman Mohammed has been arrested by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Gombe State Command, for allegedly sodomizing 12 Almajiri children between the ages of five and 10 years old in the state.
The father of three was paraded by the NSCDC on Tuesday, February 7.
While speaking to newsmen, Mohammed, who is a resident of Liji in Yalmatu Deba Local Government Area of the state, said he was introduced to same-s3x intercourse by his Islamic teacher as an 18-year-old Almajiri student in Kano. According to him, he regrets his action and wants the public to forgive him.
While parading Mohammed, the State Commandant of the NSCDC, Waziri Goni, said upon interrogation, the suspect confessed to the crime, adding that he disclosed that he was introduced to homos3xuality to become rich.
“Unfortunately, he has not become rich. How can God bless such efforts of someone taking advantage of young boys? He has three children and a wife but prides himself in r#ping children in an attempt to get rich, he has remained a nail cutter,” Goni said.
The NSCDC commandant appealed to parents to ensure they take care of their children as nobody can take care of children better than their parents.
