Two persons have been arrested by the Police in connection with the disappearance of a 17-year-old boy’s manhood in Lambata, Gurara Local Government Area of Niger State.
A witness identified as Mohammed Tsado, disclosed that the victim, identified as Suleiman Usman, confided in him, saying one of the suspects came down from a car and asked him for a hand shake which he declined.
Tsado said the victim upon insistence, heeded to the handshake only then he realised that his manhood has vanished and quickly raised alarm.
Following the alarm by the victim, the suspect was said to have horridly entered the car and sped off but was intercepted at Muye by vigilantes who had been tipped off. Upon been caught, irate youths descended on the suspects and attempted to lynch them but the timely intervention of the police saved the day.
The two suspects where however taken to the police station.
It was gathered that the suspects were asked to restore the Usman’s manhood. He reportedly taken to a commercial sex worker few minutes later to confirm if it was restored and is functioning. Usman though confirmed the restoration of the victim’s manhood but said he could not ‘perform’.
Confirming the incidence, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, disclosed that the matter was a sensitive one and as such will be handled professionally.
“But, the angry youths did not allow the police to do their job. I can assure you that we are on top of the matter and we will ensure the case is handled amicably,” Elkana said
