Gombe NSCDC arrests 76-year-old kidnapper, 20 under-aged sex workers
Gombe State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), has arrested a 76-year-old kidnapper, Ibrahim Muhammadu, who has been on the run for over nine months.
The Command also arrested 20 under-aged sex workers and three railway vandals. The Commandant, Waziri Goni, who paraded the suspects before newsmen, said14 men allegedly aiding the under-aged sex workers at an illegal hotel were arrested at Gida Lokachi (house of entertainment.)
Lamenting the spate of social decadence that has eaten deep into the nation’s fabric, Goni warned that his men were capable and poised to tame the excesses of criminals in the state.
He urged parents to devote more time for their children, regretting that: “this is heart rendering that here are teenagers are being used for sex relief.
“Seriously now, the nation is in trouble but I assure you that the Command is adequately prepared to tame the menace.”
Goni said the railway vandals would be charged to court, adding that the Command, six months ago arrested five of the six kidnappers that besieged one Alhaji Aminu’s house at Balaji village in Dukku Local Council
“We have been on the trail of Ibrahim Mohammed, the sixth gang member, he has even confessed to the crime, already his cohorts are at the court for trial,” he added.
MEANWHILE, the manager of the entertainment house, Alhaji Muhammed, denied running an illegal hotel, but merely said: “we are just helping the government to provide jobs for them (the teenagers).”
He, however, explained that pregnant women are never admitted into the house as those that sought admittance in the past were denied.
