Hamza Yusuf, a 30-year-old alleged serial rapist has been nabbed by men of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Sokoto State for defiling three minors.
The state Commandant of the NSCDC, Umar Musa-Bala, told newsmen on Monday that the alleged suspect was arrested following a distress call from a public-spirited person.
According to Musa-Bala; “We received a distress call that, a serial rapist was arrested and was about to be lynched in Mabera area.
”We swiftly swung into action and rescued him from a mob who wanted to kill him and brought him to our office.
” We were able to identify three of his victims who are all below the age of 10 and medical investigation proved defilement beyond the reasonable doubt”, Musa-Bala said
Bala added that the suspect would be released on bail because of the ongoing strike by the Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria.
”He must produce a surety that is well recognize in the society. Who will bring him to us on request”, he said
