NSCDC, Dr. Muhammed Gidado, had at different times, forcefully

Gidado said the boy reported that the four men had been abusing
him sexually for over two years at different locations and he
could not tell his parents for fear they would kill him like
The Commandant added that the young boy was verified when he was
taken to a hospital for medical examination and the result
proved that he had been abused sexually.

middle aged was arrested in the Ojo area of Lagos State, in
August after he was caught raping a five-year-old boy.
