Some suspected rapists known for ‘raping and Impregnating mad women’ in Kano have been arrested, Rabiu Yusuf, the State Commissioner of Police has informed.

Yusuf stated this in a statement which contained records of the command’s 2016 report. He informed that some of these suspects have been convicted and serving not less than 24 years jail terms.

Kano Commissioner of Police also stated that no fewer than 570 suspected rapists were arrested and charged to court by the Command in the year 2016.

He said majority of the rape victims were minors comprising of boys and girls while the rest are women adding that all the suspects arrested were adults.

“Also among the suspects, there are some that were accused of raping and impregnating mad women. Some of the convicts have bagged 14 years imprisonment,” he said.

When contacted, leader of the Federation of Women Lawyers in Nigeria (FIDA) Kano State Chapter, an organization known for protection of the rights of rape victims in the state,

Barrister Husaina Adamu Aliyu said the menace of rape especially of minors has become rampant in Kano.

“We have witnessed a case where a father raped his 3-month-old biological daughter and a step father raped his 10-yr-old step daughter and so on so forth. This problem is becoming something else in this state,” she said.

Husaina said the organization is facing challenges in handling such cases in court largely from the state prosecution, noting that “most of these cases are being frustrated at the Magistrate courts for lack of commitment on the part of government.” She said although few months ago, police and Kano state government intensified efforts towards curtailing the menace, the problem is gradually returning to the state as it is not receiving the deserved attention.

Husaina also said “parents are also not helping matters as far as this problem is concerned; they have developed the habit of neglecting their children, encouraging them into street hawking or sending on errands especially in the night hours.”

The statement indicated that 547 rape cases, 86 murder cases, 72 armed robbery case and 43 cases of kidnapping were reported to the police in the state this year. He said 119 kidnappers were arrested.
