A gay teacher, Murtala Mode, has been arrested by the Sokoto State police, following the confession of some of his students that he has serially raped them at their Almajiri school in Arkilla.
The victims, aged between 4 and 15, also said the teacher collects money from some external homosexual clients and forces them to submit themselves to sexual acts.
However, Mr Mode admitted to having carnal knowledge of only three minors in the school, but six of the pupils said he had forceful sexual intercourse with them. In his statement to the police, the suspect said God destined the act to happen.
The six victims are now under the custody of Save The Child Initiative Sokoto, while Muslim Lawyers Association of Nigeria, MULAN, Sokoto branch provides food for them.
