Village Head Accused Of Raping, Infecting Girl With HIV In Jigawa



Umar Ibrahim, the Village Head of Dan Gulam in Gwaram Local Government Area of Jigawa State, has been accused of raping, impregnating and infecting a girl with HIV.

This was made known via a letter dated October 16, 2023, and addressed to the Secretary of Dutse Emirate Council by the Senior State Counsel in the Jigawa State Ministry of Justice, Kabiru Abdullah, titled: “Notification of arraignment of Umar Ibrahim (Village Head of Dan Gulam) on the offense of rape contrary to Section 3 (1) (A and D) of the Violence Against Persons Prohibition (VAPP) Law 2021.”

According to the letter, Kabiru Abdullah said, “I have been directed by the Attorney General of Jigawa State to write and notify Your Highness that a complaint of rape and infection with HIV was lodged at the Office of the Attorney General by one Ya’u Muhammad in which he alleged that Umar Ibrahim (Village Head of Dan Gulam) engaged his daughter in illegal sexual intercourse which resulted in her pregnancy and infected her with HIV.”

The letter explained that upon receiving the complaint, parties were invited, and in the course of discussion with the Attorney General, Umar Ibrahim (the village head) revealed that he had filed a case of defamation against the girl, her father and one Sule Umar of Dan Gulam village before the Upper Shari’a Court in Gwaram.

It further explained that the attorney general directed for the case at the Upper Sharia Court, Gwaram, to be taken over, and all parties were referred to the CID in Dutse for investigation.

After the investigation by the CID, the letter explained that the case diary was sent to the Ministry of Justice for legal advice, saying that the legal advice was given, and it revealed prima facie a case of criminal conspiracy and rape was made against Umar Ibrahim, who, to the attorney general’s greatest dismay, is the Village Head of Dan Gulam in Gwaram Local Government Area.

It stated that in view of the above fact and that he would soon be arraigned before a court, stressing that based on the foregoing fact, the attorney general directed him to write and notify the village head of the position of the case for appropriate steps to be taken.

Reports indicated that there was pressure on the emirate to sweep the issue under the carpet despite appeals and the state government’s intervention through the office of the attorney general.

The family of the girl has called on civil society organizations and non-governmental organizations to intervene in the matter to save the girl’s life and to ensure justice is served.

The village head denied the allegation, saying that he was not the person who impregnated the girl.

He confessed that he is HIV positive and had it for the past 10 years when he married an infected widow, pointing out that that is why they are bringing that girl who has the virus and is pregnant to lay false allegations, but he swears that he didn’t do it.

Rev Sister Nabbed As Police Recover Two Stolen Children In Anambra




Two out of the three children of the same parents, who were abducted by a motorcyclist in Amaba Ime, Ikwuano LGA of Abia State, have been rescued and brought back to their parents.

They were rescued in Ekwulobia and Nkpor, two different towns in Anambra State, by security operatives.

The rescue of the two children was confirmed by the Chairman of Ikwuano LGA, Mr Osinachi Nwaka when he received the members of Online Media Practitioners Association of Nigeria, Abia State chapter, led by Promise Uzoma Okoro.

The local government chairman, who disclosed that a Reverend Sister who is a member of a child trafficking syndicate has been arrested in connection with the case, added that the Reverend Sister is being detained by the police.

He noted that the disappearance of the three children gave him a sleepless night which prompted him to organize a series of meetings with various arms of security agencies.

The Ikwuano LGA Chairman, who praised the efforts of Governor Alex Otti, Abia State Commissioner of Police and heads of other security agencies in the state in the rescue of the children, assured that the remaining one will soon be found.

The Mayor solicited the cooperation of OMPAN members and the general public to unravel the masterminds of the illicit trade in order to bring them to book for a safer Abia.

“There are syndicates in every local government that trade on children. It amazes me that a man that bought one of the first boys paid N1.8m to buy life.

“A Reverend Sister is the middle person that distributes the children and collects her cut, she’s wearing white and still in state CID till today,” Nwama said.

He advised parents to be more careful about the whereabouts of their children and cautioned schools against sending pupils away from school because of non-payment of school fees.
