BY DSP MAGAJI MUSA MAJIA POLICE PUBLIC RELATIONS OFFICER KANO STATE COMMAND ON TUESDAY 15 TH AUGUST, 2017.
Ladies and gentlemen of the Press,
Offences in relation to child abuse are on the increase despite multiple efforts by the Police Command, sister security Agencies, NGOs and relevant Stakeholders. It is alarming to see the persistent cases of rape, incest and unnatural offences clamoring up to an unprecedented level.
From the 1st of August to date, 34 cases were recorded, which in essence is translating to an alarming situation if efforts are not multiplied against it.
In the light of this ugly development, it is necessary for us to call on the general public especially parents, guardians, teachers and other stakeholders to take firm stand on the general activities of their wards who always turn out to be victims of such dastardly acts.
Members of the community especially neighbours and relations are also enjoined to keenly and closely look into their neighbourhood with a view to detect any unruly behavior. This is because, the attitudes of some parents, relations and family friends is turning out to be shocking.
It is unimaginable to see a father taking advantage of his biological daughter in the absence of her mother. Such instances are where one Nuruddeen Abubakar 40yrs old of Unguwa Uku Qtrs Kano was found to have raped his biological 14yrs old daughter who survived 3 abortions from him.
Also one Musbahu Ibrahim 25yrs old of Zangon Marikita Qtrs was arrested for severally raping his cousin sister.
In another related matter, one (Pastor) Samuel John of No. 26 Whether-head, Sabongari Kano was arrested for raping 13yrs old twin sisters and their 11yrs younger one. Also, one Dahiru Haruna and Hamza Lawan all of Sheka Qtrs Kano conspired and act in an unnatural manner against their 9yrs old male victim. All the suspects confessed to the commission of the crime.
From the 34 cases recorded, 35 suspects were arrested while 36 victims aged between 5-13yrs are involved. Presently, about 15 pending cases of sexual assault will be transferred to SCIID for discreet investigation from various divisions.
The Command finally wishes to appeal to all and sundry to put hands together and fight rape, incest, unlawful offence and other heinous crimes evolving in the society
