The Punch - - NEWS - Mai­haraji Al­tine, Gusau

Apo­lice of­fi­cer has been ar­rested by the Zam­fara State his­bah Commission for al­legedly hav­ing fun with three girls in a ho­tel room.

Parad­ing the sus­pect be­fore news­men on Tues­day in his of­fice, the commission’s Chair­man, Dr Atiku Balarabe, said the of­fi­cer who was at­tached to the Cen­tral Po­lice Sta­tion in Gusau was trailed and ar­rested by his men, fol­low­ing a re­port they re­ceived about the ac­tiv­i­ties of the po­lice of­fi­cer.

Atiku said, “The po­lice of­fi­cer was caught with three girls who are not his wives in a sin­gle room at the ho­tel com­mit­ting so­cial vices which are against the Sharia Law”.

He claimed the po­lice of­fi­cer was caught red-handed in a sit­u­a­tion that he ( the po­lice­man) could not deny, adding that he would soon be charged to court to face the wrath of the law.

“We have al­ready ar­rested the man­ager of the ho­tel and we will ar­raign him be­fore the court so that he could also be pun­ished ac­cord­ing to Is­lamic law as he is aid­ing and abet­ting adul­tery”.

He said the po­lice of­fi­cer, the three girls and the man­ager of the ho­tel would be charged to court of com­pe­tent ju­ris­dic­tion as soon as in­ves­ti­ga­tions were com­pleted for pos­si­ble pros­e­cu­tion in the court of law.

he main­tained that in this kind of case, no­body should be spared, say­ing, “The his­bah man signed an ac­cord to deal de­ci­sively with any ac­tion con­trary to the Is­lamic laws”.

Ef­forts made by our re­porter to get the name of the of­fi­cer failed be­cause nei­ther the commission nor the vic­tim was will­ing to co­op­er­ate.
