- A girl also under arrest for running prostitution rings for terrorists
The Intelligence Response Team (IRT), a special Police unit fighting kidnapping, has arrested a woman who allegedly supplies women to terrorists at Galadimawa forest, Giwa Local Government Area (LGA) of Kaduna State.
Maryam Abubakar, a housewife and resident of Rugar Hanwa, Sabon Gari LGA, who was arrested on December 21, 2021, has confessed to have been in the business of luring women, including her own daughters and nieces, to the terrorists for sexual pleasure.
Maryam said her clients were paying her N20,000 and that the women were being ferried to the forest on motorbikes.
Also arrested was a girl named Fatima Jibril, who, in connivance with her boyfriend, Muslim Abubakar, both residents of the Sakadadi area in Sabon Gari, had also been supplying women to the terrorists.
The syndicate was exposed when the girls they had earlier procured for the criminals in the forest couldn’t return.
Another woman, Jummai Ibrahim, was arrested on the suspicion that she had been engaging in an affair with the terrorists’ kingpin in the forest.
Ibrahim said she submitted herself to the terrorists’ kingpin to protect her children and her father from their wraths because the bandits threatened to kill them, even after they had rustled the family’s cattle.
Some of the women said they had passed the night only once with the terrorists.
One of them said the terrorists were living alongside their wives, only that they are hosted at different locations separate from their families and that they always inseparable from their guns round the clock, and they were stockpiled with foodies.
The arrested women were, however, remorseful for being in romance with the terrorists in the forest.
Most of the women offering sex to the terrorists for money confirmed that they at least had Secondary School education while some were making efforts to go to higher institutions.
