The Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps on Friday confirmed the rise of homosexuality in Niger State, revealing that underage boys were mostly being molested in the acts.
One suspect was arrested during the week while two boys between the ages of 13 and 17 were hospitalised after being sexually abused.
The State Commander of the NSCDC, Mr. Philip Ayuba, who confirmed the development, said that the arrest of the suspect was different from those made by sister security agencies in Niger.
Ayuba said that the 50-year-old suspect from Kebbi State, Musa Danmasani, was caught while sleeping with two underage boys.
He said Danmasani first abused 17-year-old Umar Farouk before also sleeping with a 13-year-old named Abdulrahaman Jibrin.
