Serial Child Rapist Arrested In Lagos

Mr. Abubakar Sulaiman

Forty five year old Abubakar Sulaiman, a suspected serial rapist, has been charged before the Ikeja Magistrate Court, Lagos for allegedly raping children.
Police officers attached to the Area M police command filed a two-count-charge against the petty trader at the family court 6 for having unlawful carnal knowledge of a 7-year-old and a 5-year-old girl (names withheld).
The charge sheet read that on March 28, at about 4.000pm in the Ifelodun area of Shasha in Lagos, Abubakar, had unlawful carnal knowledge of the 7-year-old in his kiosk, and on the same date and in the same place, he also raped her sister.
According to the prosecution, the accused committed an offence punishable under section 218 of the Criminal Code cap17 volume II laws of Lagos State of Nigeria 2003.
Following the arraignment, the accused was conveyed to the Kirikiri prison, where he will be remanded until June 18 when the case will come up for hearing.
Sadly, these are not the only rape cases Abubakar will answer to, as he is also alleged to have raped a 3-year-old and a 5-year-old both of whom he lured to his shop with candy.
Abubakar resides on the same street with the girls’ parents at Shasha.
According to the girls’ mother, Abubakar is a serial rapist and medical reports show that he also raped the girls in his shop on their way back from school sometime in March.
“One day, in March, my neighbour noticed that her daughter came home with sweets and she decided to probe the girl, so that was how she confirmed that Abubakar slept with her children, aged 5 and 7,” she said.
“She ran to tell me that my two girls, aged 3 and 5, were also defiled by Abubakar and I decided to question my girls and they confessed to me that he had sex with them in his shop when they were on their way back from school, then he will use a white handkerchief to clean them up.
“As if this was not enough, this dirty old man will kiss them on their lips and threaten them not to tell anybody. This man is not only a serial rapist, he is also a ritualist and we will ensure that he is jailed for raping babies.
“We know that he is facing charges for raping my neighbour’s daughters but we have also reported him to the police based on the medical reports that he had defiled my daughters, so he is going to face another rape case.”
According to medical resorts conducted on the girls by the Orile- Agege General hospital, it was revealed that the girls’ hymens were broken due to penile penetration.
The report further revealed that the four girls had sexually transmitted diseases known as Cultured Staphylococcus Aureus, which has been treated.
The president of Africans for Human Rights (AFRIRIGHTS), Afolabi Gbajumo, stated that rape of young girls has been on the increase in Lagos State, and called for severe punishments to be meted out on the rapist.
“This matter has been swept under the carpet, as it was seen as an ethnic indictment of an Hausa man by Yorubas. But the medical reports show that the man raped the girls and many others who have refused to come out to talk about it; so it is very wrong to bring ethnic sentiment into this matter as we learnt that some Hausa youth stormed the police station and wanted to prevent the police from arresting the suspect. When we heard about the serial rapist, we organised the families to stand up for justice,” he said.
“This is not a case of Hausa or Yoruba, it is a crime against humanity and no tribe should condone it because this man can also rape young Hausa girls tomorrow, so what will the Hausas do?. This is one too many, and we must all rise to stop the rape of our girls and babies. We got report that this man is a serial rapist and ritualist and we will fight with our whole blood to ensure that the victims get justice.”
