When I graduated here 24 years ago, my mother was absent from the ceremony, because it was too expensive for her to make the trip from my native village in Kenya to the United States. So you can imagine the joy I felt last week as I brought her for her first visit to the university, at the age of 83! Though uneducated herself, my mother has always valued education and indeed remains one of the smartest people I know.

MAN SLICES PENIS, PLUCKS EYES OF 15-YEAR-OLD BOY HE ACCUSED OF HAVING SEX WITH HIS DAUGHTER

An angry dad is alleged to have sliced off a 15-year-old boy’s penis and gouged out his eyes because he thought the lad was sleeping with his daughter.

According to Punch

‘The teen was rushed to Jinnah Hospital in Lahore, Pakistan, where medics were able to save his life – but he was left disfigured and blinded in the horrific attack.’

The incident came to light on Tuesday after the boy’s family claimed the girl’s family were responsible and demanded action against them.

The young boy’s dad claimed the girl’s father and three of his friends kidnapped the boy and attacked him – because the girl’s dad thought the pair were having a fling.

He claimed: “The girl’s dad and his accomplices kidnapped our son from his school and took him to a deserted place near Ravi river.

“They brutally chopped off his sexual organ and pricked his eyes in revenge, and then fled.”

The teenager was said to have been found bleeding profusely by a passerby, who took him to hospital where he was treated for blood loss after the penis was chopped off and his eyes removed.

The incident is being investigated by Lahore Police, who have arrested all the accused in the case.

Senior police officer, Haider Ashraf, said: “We will submit the report of the case after completing investigation.” 

NIGER STATE MAN WHO RAPED A 12YEAR OLD CHILD TO DEATH SENTENCED TO 1 MONTH IMPRISONMENT WITH A FINE OF N30,000

A 12-year-old boy, identified only as Aminu, has lost his life after he was allegedly sexually abused by one Abubakar, a tea seller in Ngwayanma, in the Kontagora area of Niger State. .

Abubakar, aka Maishai, had reportedly abducted Aminu from his parents’ house sometime in March, and held him hostage in his (Abubakar’s) apartment. He was alleged to have severally had anal sex with Aminu for two weeks, until the victim fell ill. .

It was gathered that a neighbour, who got wind of Aminu’s abduction, raised the alarm and reported the case to the police at the Kontagora division. While Abubakar was arrested, the boy was admitted to a hospital, where he died. .

A police source said that Abubakar was arraigned in a Kontagora Chief Magistrate’s Court before the boy died, on two counts of abduction and unnatural offences, to which the defendant pleaded guilty. .

“The unfortunate thing is that he was sentenced to one month’s imprisonment with a fine of N30,000, which is ridiculous. The punishment generated a lot of outcry. But it is not the police’s fault. What the police can do is to appeal the case or file a new charge, now that boy is dead,” he added.

The Niger State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Elkana James, confirmed Aminu’s death, saying that the case had been transferred to the command headquarters in Minna. .

He added that the suspect would be re-arraigned on a fresh charge of culpable homicide. He said, “He is still in prison, serving the one month’s imprisonment. Once the new charge is filed, he would be reproduced to take his plea.”

SO SAD! 7-MONTHS OLD GIRL DEFILED BY HER 57 YEAR OLD STEP FATHER IN KATSINA STATE HAS DIED (PHOTOS)

The 7-month old girl who was raped by her 57 year old stepfather, Magaji Dansale, in Katsina state last month, has died. She died at the Turai Yar’Adua hospital today.

Recall that Magaji who is currently in police custody, raped the little girl at his home in Marmachi village of Musawa Local Government Area, Katsina State.

He told newsmen that he had canal knowledge of the little girl because he believed he would become rich once he sleeps with an infant

When asked why he chose the step daughter instead of his biological daughter, Dansale said, “She is also my child, I just don’t know how it happened. I regret my action and want to plead for leniency.”

The girl’s mother, 25-year-old Zinnai Muntari, said when she woke up for the morning prayers and saw blood on the private part of the baby, her husband asked her to bring the child and after observing her, said it was pile and hurried out to bring some herbs to use on her.

“As a mother, I felt this was unusual and reached out for help at the General Hospital Malumfashi where the doctor confirmed it was a forceful entry that tore the vagina up to the anus.

“They later referred us to the Umar Turai Children and Maternity Hospital in Katsina,” she said.

The girl’s biological father, Ibrahim Nuhu, said there was no going back until justice is served.

“All I want now is to save the life of my daughter and for justice to take its course to serve as deterrent to others,” he said.

The state Commissioner of Police, Usman Abdullahi, described the matter as “disheartening and very pathetic”.

“We suspect that the woman was drugged, for how come with probably all the screaming of the baby the mother couldn’t wake up?

“I assure you, we will charge him to court to get the case to its logical conclusion.

“It is worrisome for Katsina, the rise in rape cases is alarming. Last year alone, over 110 cases of rape were handled”.

55-YEAR-OLD MAN ARRESTED FOR ALLEGEDLY RAPING HIS 7-MONTH-OLD STEPDAUGHTER

Dansale Magaji has been arrested by police for allegedly raping his stepdaughter, Hauwa Ibrahim. The seven-month old baby girl, it was gathered, was admitted to the Turai Yar’Adua Maternity and Children Hospital, Katsina after she was allegedly raped by Magaji about a week ago. .

Hauwa was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday after a referral from the General Hospital, Malumfashi where doctors confirmed that the baby was raped. The baby’s father, Ibrahim Nuhu, revealed that the rape was committed at Dangaski village in the Musawa LGA of the state. .

He said the baby’s mother, Zinai, had separated from him. Ibrahim, who spoke in Hausa, said sometime last week, Zinai approached him complaining that the baby had piles which had resulted in bleeding in her private part and anus. .

He said he took the baby to the General Hospital, Malumfashi where the doctors after examining the baby insisted that the police should be invited as it was a rape case and not piles as claimed by the mother. .

The baby’s anus and vagina were said to have been injured due to forceful penetration. Hauwa was consequently referred to the children hospital for further treatment while the police were called in. .

Zinai said that sometime last week, she woke up to find traces of blood and water in the baby’s private parts. According to her, she assumed that the baby had piles. “The following day after I made the observation, Magaji gave me some clothes to wash, including trousers stained with blood and semen,” she added. .

Police sources in Katsina said Magaji had already been arrested in connection with the incident. The Katsina State Police Command spokesman, DSP Isah Gambo, confirmed the incident, saying the issue would be addressed at a press conference on Friday (today) by the police commissioner, Usman Abdullahi.
