One of the suspects, Isah, said none of their victims or their parents had been bold enough to report them to the police stating that it surprised him that they were arrested because of the rape.
According to Isah:
We are street boys, we move from one village to another looking for whom to rape since we have no money to give to girls after sex.
We usually perform the act where nobody will see us and our victim cannot refuse us sex. We have no means of livelihood and that was why we resort to raping women and girls.
The suspects’ arrest came after their victim who they trailed from work reported the incident to her father.
Speaking to newsmen, the state’s Police Public Relations Officer Muhammad Abubakar said the rapists will be charged to court after investigations has been concluded.
