A 57-year-old security guard has been arrested by the police in Gwarinpa, Abuja over allegations of sodomy with a 7-year-old boy. The suspect had been luring the boy, who hawks sachet water around the area, with money, police say.
"The suspect would give the boy N200 and convince him to carry out the homosexual act with him. But the boy became uncomfortable with the bizarre act and reported to his mother," the source said.
The mother told the husband what was happening to their son and he decided to report to the police, who moved into action and arrested the suspect at the scene of the crime, and the which he used in rubbing in the boy’s anus was recovered as exhibit.
When contacted, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Gwarinpa, CSP. Nuruddeen Sabo, confirmed the incident.
