The Nigeria Police command in Kebbi State have arrested three men for molesting a pregnant housewife for the ‘sins’ of her husband, who they claimed played an offensive Islamic sermon.
The suspects: Yusuf Ahmed, Muazu Mohammed and Bawa Ibrahim, were arrested in Ula town in Ngaski Local Government Area of the state.
The Deputy Commisioner of police, Garba Saleh, said that the victim was Molested because her husband, Muhammad Dantilo, refused to stop playing the sermon of Malam Maiguduma, which they considered offensive.
He said the victim was molested over an offence ostensibly committed by her husband, stressing that she identified the rapists, who also said they wanted to teach her husband a lesson.
The accused persons, who had earlier threatened Dantilo, took the opportunity of his departure on a fishing expedition to abduct and molestation his wife.
The deputy commissioner said the accused also dispossessed their victim of N 150,000 cash.
He said the victim personally identified all the suspects, adding that Ibrahim, who threatened Dantillo, was also arrested and would be prosecuted soon.
The accused persons have been charged before a Magistrate Court for theft, criminal intimidation, molestation and criminal trespass.
