Police arraign professor, three others over sodomy at Kano school

Police have arraigned a professor and two other persons in Kano, in connection to alleged sexual abuse of several students at a boys’ college in the state.

The attacks at Hassan Gwarzo Secondary Scollege, sparked outrage in Kano, leading to the closure of the institution.

On Thursday, police arraigned the proprietor of Hassan Gwarzo Secondary School, Ibrahim Ayagi; the school principal, Muhammad Jimo, and two others before Justice Aminu Kabara of Kano High Court 5 on eight-count charges.

The charges border on criminal conspiracy, abetment, negligence, failure to give information, among others.

Mr. Ayagi, a professor of Economics, is standing trial on a one-count charge of “gross indecency”.

The presiding judge, Aminu Kabara, adjourned the case to 29 February for further hearing.

On Wednesday, Kano State government announced the reopening of the college after three months of closure, following reported assault on students by some unidentified persons last year.

In October 2015, a report aired on a Kano private radio station, Freedom Radio, on a series of sodomy cases in the school, sparked outrage and forced the state government to shut the school and set up an investigation panel.

The state government reached the decision to reopen the school after weekly its Executive Council Meeting on Wednesday, asking the school to inculcate moral teachings in the students, employ enough guards and install CCTV cameras to monitor activities there.

But parents of the victims of the alleged sexual abuse faulted the decision of the state government, saying justice was not done.

A spokesman for the affected parents, Aminu Sheriff, said the school should not be reopened at a time when some of the victims were still in hospital.

    I believe the accused persons are mislims whose case should be taken to the the Sharia Court, so that they could have their satanic genitals cut off.
