Court Remands Minna-based Man for Alleged Homosexuality



dreamstime_s_35313106Minna (NAN) – A Magistrates’ Court in Minna on Wednesday remanded in prison custody one Yakubu Danladi, 37, for alleged homosexuality.

Danladi was arraigned on a one-count-charge of an “unnatural offense’’ with a 14- year-old Ahmed Mohammed, in his house in Minna.

The prosecutor, Afred Auta, had told the court that one Alhaji Danasebe of Angwan Daji in Minna reported the matter at the State Police Headquarters on Sept. 9.

Auta said Danasebe told the police that the accused had been having carnal knowledge of Mohammed on several occasions over the past six months.

Auta said during police interrogation at the station, the accused pleaded guilty to the offense.

“Mohammed has been living with me for the past two years because his mother who is my relative gave the boy to live under my care.

“The mother of the boy came to my house on Sept. 8 to take back the boy. It was then I realized that blood was coming out of the boy’s anus.

“I told the mother to wait till the end of the month when I will receive my salary to take the boy to the hospital, but she refused.

“She objected to it by reporting the case to my uncle who then called the vigilance group; they started beating me and insulted me before taking me to the police,” Danladi said.

However, when the charge was read to the accused in court, he pleaded not guilty to the offense.

In her ruling, Magistrate Amina Musa, adjourned the case till Sept. 29 to allow police conclude their investigations.

    Paedophilia albeit with a boy which is even worse. If he had a 5, 6, 7 or 8 year old with him he would have done the same.

    ?????? Pls can someone tell us how this is homosexuality, an adult had sex with a minor, isn’t that paedophilia. Nigerian government u can try ur hardest to portray the gay community in a bad light but u will still lose in the end, I haven’t forgotten about the so called gay cult called “yansh” REALLY? Long hiss.

      BN, a suggestion if I may.

      It seems that people are able to “love this” their own comments as often as they wish. Would it be possible for this to be rectified? It really helps to assess popular opinions more accurately, as opposed to one person just going berserk on the ” love this ” button.

      Ps. I promise not to love this comment, if others support this view then pls look into it. Thanks

      @dizzy,I have never ever gone back to click the “love this” button on my own comment, its pathetic, clicking the love this button on ur own comment, it defeats the purpose of commenting, (oya start saying I have guilty conscience blah blah blah) I don’t expect any of you to believe me, as I said earlier its not personal. Bella naija sees nothing wrong with ma comment, and so they allow it, sometimes if my comment is too offensive, they don’t allow it. Many of u people say I’m looking for attention, HOW? I will not sugar coat my comments EVER. I will not worship ur pastors neither will I celebrate mediocrity. Thank you.

      That, ma’am was funny. I especially loved the ‘pun intended’ part. Sadly your target ain’t rolling that deep (pun also intended).

      How are you more concerned about the homosexuality offence than the paedophilia offence?

    LMAO!! when is homosexuality is a crime. if the sex is consensual why arresting the man it’s only if it happen via rape. Nigeria and there backward thinking mentality that’s why the country is still in the dark in all aspect of proggressive living. the funny thing is the will bring up religion and culture as the reason to hate gays. Homosexual is not a choice it’s natural i have a lot of homosexual friends and there way of life does not influence mine and i still call them my friends. Nigerians and the Gov’t need to be open minded when dealing with this issue.

      Seriously?!! If this was between two adults, it would be a different matter but there’s something called the age of consent. The boy is only 14!!! It’s clearly sexual abuse of a minor. He’s not old enough to have ‘consensual sex’.

    @Dizzy, you are very correct. There is no way this subject would get 43 likes from a single insane comment. Bruno Bruno the attention seeker, so you are gay but you do not even know the definition of homosexuality.

    This is terrible- they should really check this boy out for all kinds of viruses and diseases- homosexual rape/sex is a huge risk factor for HIV

    • Marc Francis of Chelsea

      You sound incredibly stupid. So “straight rape” is safe rape right? Lower risk of infection if he did it to a girl? Amazing!

      Lmao, have you seen the statistics of those infected with HIV in Africa? They are straight men and women, most of them already spoused. Not the homosexuals, so, stop spreading your stupidity in public, it’s unbecoming.

      ignorance is a disease worse than HIV. at least one can manage HIV with medication.

    The dummy wagon has arrived, many of you people commenting are pure dummies. Hiv may be common amongst gay people in america, but in africa, it is u straight people that have HIV, almost every straight person in Nigeria has HIV and may know or may not know about their status, polygamy, ignorance, and poor health care are the main causes of spread of hiv in nigeria, not gay people, let’s not forget, fela died of HIV/AIDS, he was straight and a polygamist, the first time HIV was discovered in nigeria, it was a girl who had it. So pls get ur facts right,and if u like don’t use a condom when ur doing ur business na u sabi. #preach

    I don’t care to know where a grown ass man puts his genitals or what a grown ass woman sticks into hers. It’s their buisness as long as they are not corrupting children or forcing themselves on people and it doesn’t effect their productivity at work. Sorry to say but it’s my observation that people who are obsessed with other people’s sexuality are themselves sex addicts, into really depraved pornograpy. Some people just have sex perpetually on their minds and can’t help fantasising about other people’s sex lives. How does another persons sexual preference affect you, admit it ,the very thought of it tickles you in your own genitals. Freak!!.,

    Bella your header on this article is simply incorrect. The man had been jailed for molesting a minor. Not for being gay. Geez

    Well at the end of the day,there’s a thin line between homosexuality and peadophilia .Both are disgusting. BN, in addition to Dizzy’s suggestion,you really need to moderate comments by the likes of Bruno and Amuke. The stuff they write are sickening, to put it mildly.

    • Laila

      September 10, 2014 at 10:33 pm

      And I hope both of them get treatment someday,because they are obviously dealing with some serious issues!

      September 11, 2014 at 5:34 pm

      So let me recap what you are saying . it is better for a minor to be raped, molested by a heterosexual paedophile, than a homo one. so it is the TYPE of paedophile that is your problem. In your narrow mind you don give paedophilia level and grade. gurl you got way too much sex on your mind its broken. Coming out here sounding all anal retentive . me thinks the jury is out with whom actually needs help here.

      A thin line???? seriously????
      looks like a THICK line to me!…in fact, a boreder.
      AGE and CONSENT!!!! those two make homosexuality and paedophilia two different things.
      Yes, you may find homosexuals that engage in paedophilia acts, but you will also find hetrosexuals.!!!!

      i think the term sickening is subjective. Personally I find Your comparison of homosexuals to pedos out of order, sickening and offensive. your self righteous attitude is idiotic and bears no resemblance to morality. Bella needs to moderate comments made by ignorant bigots.

    • Amuka

      September 12, 2014 at 6:05 am

      Thank you for auto confirming my hypothesis. A guilty person always protest loudest . I hate to imagine what other depraved thoughts run amuck in your head. Yuck!


    September 11, 2014 at 7:02 am

    i pray for the boy! i hope he is not destroyed!! plz dont leave boys alone with men oo!! apparently they are now rapists.
