Gay man kidnaps boy, rapes him to death in Niger

A notorious homosexual who kidnapped a young boy and raped him to death in Niger State has been arrested by the police.

The innocent boy raped to death

According to a Hausa online news platform, Filter, Maishayi who sells bread and tea in the area, abducted the boy identified only as Aminu and subjected him to repeated anal sex till he lost consciousness.

The victim later died from his injuries in a hospital while receiving treatment while the suspect who had initially gone into hiding, was traced and arrested by some youths in the area who were bent on lynching him but for the timely intervention of the police that saved his life.

Confirming the incident, a child rights activist in the community, Comrade Zakari Adam Y. Kontagora said Maishayi was a known homosexual in the town and for a long time, he had been shielded from prosecution by the elders of the town who always prevented justice being carried out on him, with the action leading to the death of the young boy.

Comrade Kontagora has, therefore, called on the relevant authorities in the state to promptly enact a child rights act to put in check the incessant rape of children.
