2 in police custody for alleged sodomy

Kano state police command has paraded two middle aged men over alleged sodomy.

The suspects, Ali Yakubu, 28, and Aminu Garba, 19, were caught pants down by the community neighbourhood vigilante group in a cemetery in Dala local government area having anal sex.


Parading the suspects yesterday at the Kano state police headquarters, the Police Public Relations officer (PPRO), SP Magaji Musa Majia told reporters that Garba had earlier served a prison term over the same offence before he was arrested again last Sunday.

Responding to questions from pressmen, one of the suspects, Ali Yakubu (a.k.a Danbaba) attributed his action to evil temptation, saying it was his first time of engaging in the act.


Danbaba maintained that he did it under strong influence of drugs.

“This is my first time of yielding to this kind of temptation and I did it under the influence of drugs. There was no any bargain for the act. We were taking solution substance at that moment and in the process he started robbing my manhood and we eventually fall into the act” Yakubu confessed.   

Garba however disclosed that he earns between N200 to N500 for engaging in the act depending on the person involved.

Majia said the suspects would be transfered to the police sexual violence unit at Shahuci for further investigation before they could be charged to court.

Meanwhile, the police spokesman commended the sister security agencies over their support in ensuring hitch-free Eid-el-Kabir celebrations urging the residents of the city to keep watch for strange movements and report to the police for appropriate action.
