For long, many housewives and young girls could not sleep with their eyes closed for fear of being attacked by the notorious Danzagadai who move from one area to another in Nguru in order to perfect his nefarious act of sleeping with unsuspecting women, Kanem Trust learnt when Danzagadai was paraded by residents.
Residents said Danzagadai had been in the “business” for over a decade even as all efforts to put an end to his excesses could not succeed until recently when he entered the room of a young Igbo girl but luck ran out of him when her mother sighted him and sought the intervention of neighbours who caught him unawares in the room.
It was learnt that in order to achieve his aim, Danzagadai moved half naked with (bante) clad in his waist and only enter houses by jumping through the fence using scaffold. He was said to be using notorious means to enter rooms without the notice of the occupants.
His victims also notice that they are in danger when he was about to complete his “assignment”, Mairo Ali, a resident of Nguru told reporters even though she said she was not a victim.
His body was also said to be too slippery to the extent that even when he was caught, he escaped. “Before the twinkle of an eye, he slipped away. He also has outstanding capacity to run like flash of light”, Aliyu Mairiga, a resident of Gashua said.
After his arrest by residents who beat him to comma before handing him over, Dandagazai confessed that he uses charm to accomplish his trade. “Somebody from Taraba State gave me the secret long ago…I have no apology on what I am doing because I want to achieve something”, the unrepentant Dandagazai told reporters.
Our correspondent learnt that after he was handed over to vigilante group, Dandagazai was tied to a pole at Ahmadu Bello Way Nguru from 4am of that fateful day to around 12 noon for residents to see him before he was handed over to police.
Police sources at the Nguru divisional office confirmed that the man was in custody and would soon be charged to court.
“His arrest is a sign of relief, we hope he would never be released from jail”, Hannatu (not real name), a victim of his act prayed.
