‘How 32-year-old man raped 80-year-old woman, 39 others in Kano’

A 32-year-old man, Muhammad Alfa, popularly known as “Mai Siket” has been arrested by the police for allegedly raping an 80-year-old woman and 39 others in the past one year in Kano state.

The spokesman of the Command, DSP Abdullahi Haruna, confirmed the arrest in a statement on Wednesday in Kano.

Haruna disclosed that the suspect was arrested on June 10, at about 2:00 a.m. when he trespassed into a house at Kwanar Dangora town in Kano, with intent to commit the heinous crime.

He said that the suspect, popularly known as “Mai Siket”, has been trespassing into homes to have carnal knowledge of the victims for a long time, noting that some of the victims referred to the suspect as an evil spirit.

“The suspect trespassed into a house at Kwanar Dangora town, and entered the children’s bedroom, in the process the mother of the kids caught him and alerted the neighbours.

“The suspect ran away but was caught by neighbours and handed over to the police,” he said.

Haruna said that in the course of the investigation, the suspect admitted raping over 40 women in the past one year, adding that some of the victims included children and an 80-year-old woman.

He added that the Command had started receiving complaints from the victims raped by the suspect.

The spokesman said the Commissioner of Police, Mr Habu Ahmad, had ordered the suspect to be transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) for investigation.

According to him, the suspect will be charged to court after investigation.
