Mallam Busted For Sodomy

Mallam Alhassan Abukari, 60, a Fulani Muslim cleric, has been arrested by the Bimbilla police in the Nanumba District of the Northern Region for allegedly having carnal knowledge with three boys aged between 10 and 15. The victims are all Fulani’s living in the community.

One of the victims (name withheld), is currently on admission at the Bimbilla hospital undergoing treatment due to severe pains and swelling around the anus.

Investigations revealed that the suspect picks children from poor backgrounds under the pretext of taking them through Arabic classes in his house.

Mallam Abukari is alleged to be having anal sex with the children and if any of them refused, he purportedly punished them severely or even threatened them.

He succeeded in sodomizing three children but the latest victim, 13 years old, blew his cover.

A report was made to the police and the suspect was quickly arrested at his residence.

The Arabic classes have since been halted by the police and the children sent to their various homes.

The Northern Regional Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Ebenezer Tetteh who confirmed the arrest to DAILY GUIDE, said the suspect is currently in police custody for further investigation.

According to him, after investigations he would be charged and arraigned before court charged with defilement.
