A 53-year-old man, Usman Ahmadu, has been nabbed by the police in Adamawa State for allegedly s+x¥ally a§§aulting a m+ntally challenged minor.
Usman Ahmadu, said to have hailed from Maiduguri in Borno State, resides as an internally displaced person, IDP, in Saminaka, a community on the outskirts of Yola, in Yola North Local Government Area.
According to a statement by the state Police Public Relations Officer, Suleiman Nguroje, on Thursday morning, the suspect confessed to s+x¥ally a§§aulting the victim four times, beginning in 2021.
The Police statement did not state the age of the a§§aulted minor. However, neighbors of the suspect, who commented on the act for which he is now in police detention, said it had been cruel of him to have po¥nced on a vulnerable minor after he had lived for years on the generous benevolence of the Saminaka community as an IDP.
