Police arrest Zazzau traditional title holder for allegedly sodomising his neighbour’s 14-year-old son in Zaria

Kaduna State Police Command has arrested a traditional title holder in the Zazzau Emirate, in Zaria for allegedly sodomising a 14-year-old boy.

Spokesman of the command, DSP Muhammadu Jalige, who confirmed the arrest to newsmen on Wednesday, December 28, 2022, said that the suspect would be prosecuted at the conclusion of the investigation.

The elder brother of the victim, Hamza Zubairu, told the News Agency of Nigeria that the incident happened on December 9, at Kwarbai Area of Zaria.

Mr Zubairu said the suspect, a neighbour of the victim’s parents used to enjoy a lot of respect in the neighbourhood.

He added that on the day of the incident, the suspect allegedly sent the victim into his room to bring some money but followed the teenager into the room and bolted the door.

He said the title holder subsequently drew a dagger and threatened to kill the boy if he raised an alarm on what he was about to do to him.

He said the boy became traumatised and could not tell anyone what happened initially until he summoned enough courage and told his aunt.

“It was the aunt that reported the case to the police at the Zaria City Divisional Police Headquarters,’’ Mr Zubairu said.

In her remarks, Aishatu Ahmed, Coordinator, Salama Sexual Assault Referral Centre, Gambo Sawaba General Hospital, Zaria, told NAN that the centre received a request for medical attention for the victim.

She said the centre had sent its findings and diagnosis to the Zaria City Divisional Police Headquarters.
