NAPTIP Kaduna division has just arrested a 50-year-old former security guard at GSS college, Kawo, Kaduna State, for allegedly raping many female students of the government school.
According to a statement which was given by the Kaduna State Human Services and Social Development Office, Sani Hayi, the accused was reported in 2016 to have repeatedly raped a 16-year-old student of the school where he worked. The girl confirmed that the abuse took place on a daily basis when she was interrogated (sometimes in the morning & afternoon). She went further to mention 5 other school mates who were also abused by this same man.
According to the victim, the suspect took her to different locations where she was abused by men or a group of women at different times. The agency (NAPTIP) said that Sani took advantage of the poor financial and mental status of the girl’s parents. They stated that the suspect was arrested in 2016 and handed over to the National Agency for the Prohibition of Trafficking in Persons for investigation and prosecution, but he escaped custody and went into hiding. He was recently arrested after the agency received a tipoff info that he had resumed work as a security guard at the Sardauna Memorial College. The agency quickly acted and also collaborated with some of the NSCDC officials and apprehended Sani in his new workplace. He is presently awaiting trial as a long handful of charges have been levelled against him.
