The Kano State Hisbah Board (Islamic Shari’a Police) said it had arrested a police constable identified as Basiru for alleged sexual abuse of women and young girls in Kano State, Northwest Nigeria.
The police constable and his friend, Jamilu used a house at Rummawa area of Ungogo Local Government Area of Kano State, where they lure women and underage girls for their sexual escapades.
An official of Hisbah who did not want to be named said: “members of the Rummawa community had complained severally about the house.”
“We had stepped in and arrested the suspects and the girl,” he added.
It was gathered that a guardian of the victim (name withheld) Usman Ahmad said his daughter had gone missing for some time but was later found with the suspect.
“Basiru was arrested and his friend Jamilu, who is the owner of the house, is now at large,” Ahmad said.
The case has been reported at the Kwakwachi Police State for further investigation.
