They are mostly hawkers, but the suspects did not consider the pain they go through, walking the streets to make ends meet before luring them to locations where they rapped them.

As they pull their pants down to have them, the thoughts of the repercussion of the grievous act was far from their hearts. Now their evil acts have caught up with them.

Five suspects who specialised in luring and raping teenagers in Mubi town in Adamawa State have been arrested.

Abdullahi Ibrahim, 32, Musa Mohammed, 31, Bakura Mohammed, 39, Joseph John, 29, and Mohammed Musa, 42, were arrested by the Adamawa Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corp (NSCDC).

The Command’s spokesman, Mr Suleiman Baba, confirmed the arrest of the suspects to the News Agency of Nigeria on Monday in Yola.

The suspects were apprehended following a tip-off that led to the arrest of one of them whose confession and that of their four victims ranging between the ages of 12 and 10 were used to fish out the rest.

Baba said medical reports confirmed that the minors had been violated.

“We are taking the suspects to court and they will be charged with rape, criminal force and assault on minors,” Baba stated.

Again the arrests have revealed the agony that hawkers go through everywhere you find them.

Baba said the victims were girl hawkers and cautioned parents on sending their little children to hawk instead of ensuring there were in school.

“Parents need to be vigilant on the movement of their wards if we must tackle this problem,” Baba added.

A resident of Mubi town, Mr Danladi Chamber, who lauded the development, said residents would be mobilised to support NSCDC to expose more suspects.

“We are working on a theory that those rapists of minors are syndicate. We need to work and expose those dangerous people,” Chamber said.
