Two men, 24-year-old Musa and Abdul, 21, have reportedly raped a 9-year-old boy several times after luring him with N100 in Gwange, Maiduguri, Bor­no State.
The father of the boy, Malam Jubrin, revealed that he noticed that his son had money of no known source and threat­ened to beat him who then confessed that Musa and Abdul who are their neighbours, used to take him into one of the class­rooms of their school to abuse him sexually.
The boy’s father said his son also disclose to him that the men gave him money and threatened to beat him up if he told anyone what transpired between them.
He said, “For quite sometimes I was seeing my son with money, so I asked him and he lied to me that he picked it from the ground.
“I said to myself that I needed to know the source of this money so I beat him seriously before he confessed to me. He told me that after they had raped him, they would give him N100 or N50.
“When I confronted the boys who raped my son they threatened to deal with me so I reported them to the Civilian JTF.”
He said the suspected rapists wanted to ruin his son’s life and he wanted justice.
According to the re­port, the two boys have been arrested and handed over to the Police who have said they were still carrying out investiga­tion. -The Authority
