Auwalu Idris, 41, Nazifi Abba, 25, Abdullahi Rabiu, 28, and Abu Zaid Yusu, 18, have been arrested by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps, NSCDC, for allegedly raping a 16-year-old boy– Umar Sani, in Jigawa.
According to the boy who lodged the complain by himself, the act has been ongoing for two years now but he has been afraid of talking, even to his parents.
Umar said the men raped him at different locations within their community, and threatened to kill him if he told anybody.
The state Commandant of the NSCDC, Dr. Muhammed Gidado, confirmed the reports after medical examination and results proved that Umar had indeed been sexually abused.
The 4 suspects have been arraigned.
