NSCDC Arrests Borno Govt Official for Inserting Electric Heater in his 10-year-old Son’s Anus over Suspicion of Being Gay



One Shettima Gudumballi, 58, who allegedly inserted electric heater into the anus of his 10-year-old son for being gay has been arrested by Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).

The Commandant of the Corps, Ibrahim Abdullahi, stated this in an interview with NAN in Maiduguri on Saturday.

Abdullahi said that the suspect committed this inhumane act over allegations that his young son had been engaging in homosexual activities with some politicians.

He said:

On January 19, one Malam Shettima Gudumballi, 58, of 1000 housing, a director with the Borno State Ministry of Forestry, was arrested by the command for torturing his 10-year-old son Umar Shettima with electric heater.

The father suspected that his son was a gay along with four others, who also mentioned 12 other boys between the ages of 11 and 14 (who are) involved (in the act). After examination of the victim by  doctors on duty at the State Specialist Hospital, they suggested that the anus might developed bacteria and further complicated.

The commandant told NAN that the father is still in the custody of the corps and would be arraigned in court after investigation for his dastardly act.

    What is wrong with this people. Your son is gay and you want to kill because of whom he did not choose to be. There is not wrong in being gay man or woman it will be hard to accept but with little bit of open mind I hope everyone will understand.

      The thing is there is no certainty that the boy is even gay. He is only 10 years old for goodness’ sake. This is a case of sexual abuse and rape of a minor.

      What? This is insanely wrong. Speechless. This is rape, abuse and evil.
      Point of correction, being gay is a choice. If I choose to be lesbian now, I can. It’s all about attraction and preference.

    The heart of man is truly evil. Your own son, your flesh and blood what will you do to a total stranger. But these Politicians are devils sha.

    The man left the politicians for taking advantage of his son and instead did this to his son and people on Facebook had the effrontery to applaud such barbarism.
    If he couldn’t stomach the idea of it, why not disown the boy?
    Every time I read stuff like this, my heart bleeds for my African brothers and sisters.
    When will we intellectually superior enough to exhibit empathy.
    Anyways, there better lock up that filthy man that calls himself a father.

    Did you guys copy and paste the story? The way they write stories in Naija is very frustrating. We need better investigative journalist in Naija.

    I think the boy or a group of boys were raped/defiled by some politicians. One of them, i’m guessing the 10yr old boy told his parents. I can’t even wrap my mind around the actions of the father. Why? I can understand beating the boy if you think he’s gay, i can even understand taking him to church for deliverance but inserting electric heater????

    He’s 10, i doubt he has a full grasp of what homosexuality means. Borno state does not strike me as a place where they teach kids sex ed. They need to deal with the father and also find the other adult that started this.

    Oh my God that was taking it too far. Better to disown him than mar him in this inhumane manner. @ the same time if this report is true then wow these northerners take things too far, poking a ten year old for God’s sake when there are adults who indulge, the pedophilic spirit in these guys run deep.

      This is not about Northerners or Southerners.
      Many Nigerians have applauded this barbarism.
      This has nothing to do with region.

    What he did is glaringly wrong and he should be prosecuted for it, but there is everything wrong in being gay. God forbids it and the Bible kicks against it. The thought of two men making love nauseates me. It’s sickening. If homosexuality isn’t wrong, then incest, peadophilia and bestiality should be decriminalized. Most Africans are becoming tolerant of homosexuality not because they think it is normal, but because the white man have come to accept it as cool. Anything the whiteman likes, africans like. We copy their accent, their mode of dressing, their TV shows, etc. Africa is just a continent of one billion copy cats.

      Dude I didn’t want to reply you but I couldn’t overlook the glaring ignorance in your comment.
      1. Incest is wrong not because it’s stated in the bible but because it may lead to inbreeding which increases the chances of birthing kids with severe genetic disorders (that’s unfair to the kids and an avoidable societal burden).

      2. Pedophilia can NEVER be compared to homosexuality as the latter is between 2 consenting adults while the former is absolutely not. No kid sits around and thinks “Oh my! I’m so horny right now”.

      3. Beastiality just like pedophilia isn’t between two consenting…… I dunno, people? Creatures? Anyway, humans and animals don’t secrete the same pheromones hence the reason dogs don’t naturally try to hump cats and horses don’t try to hump humans. Every case of beastiality or even cross-breeding between 2 different species was artificially created plus we dunno that the animals consented to the humans mating with them.

      4. If you think homosexuality is unnatural, Google homosexual behaviours in animals.

      I’m not trying to condone pedophilia, incest, or bestiality. All I’m saying is: homosexuality is as evil as incest, pedophilia and bestiality. You argument is flawed. If you are justifying homosexuality because animals exhibit homosexual tendencies, remember that male animals also mount their sisters and mothers. Should we also use this fact to campagin for the legalization of incest? Because animals are incestuous in nature, does it mean it’s also acceptable for humans. Homosexual tendencies in animals is not enough to rationalize the same behaviour in humans.

      What exactly makes homosexuality evil? The only argument against the practice is it’s against Christianity or Islam. Two grown men or women want to have sex and other people are bothered. There are no victims involved in this practice as opposed to bestiality, pedophilia and incest. Homosexuals didn’t choose to be so and being gay doesn’t make them less human. Yes some animals practice inbreeding and the consequence is the same as in humans : there’s an increased chance of birthing offspring with genetic deformities. Like I stated earlier, it’s an avoidable societal burden; so no one in their right mind will advocate for incest legalization. Besides, nature already put mechanisms in place to decrease inbreeding among animals – Google it.

      Thank you! the key word is Consent! children and animal can not give consent to sexual act with a grown man or woman. If we want to start nitpicking based on biblical references, women should stop wearing trousers, or be locked away during their menses. If you want to go the “cultural route” yes there is a history of homosexuality in our culture, all this conservativeness we throw around is the “white man’s” definition of conservative. The so-called white man persecuted homosexuals for several years until they realized that it made no sense to do so.

      That’s why there’s no progress in our society, we repeat the same “traditions” of our predecessors expecting change

      Pls, stop typing BS! Why does society frown on incest even when those involved are two consenting adults? Why do you think Pretty Mike’s action caused an uproar and led to his arrest? Afterall, Pretty Mike and the ladies, on whose neck he put the leashes on, are all consenting adults. Why do you think prostitution is illegal in most countries when most times it involves two consenting adults? There are universally acceptable rules that the human race abide by. You must know that if you want to continue to be a member of the human race, there are certain things you can’t do. Two people can’t just go about doing certain things because they are “consenting adults”.

      Oga calm down. Incest is frowned upon because of religion, the westermarck effect and most importantly, the products of such relations. Pretty Mike should not have been arrested – the Nigerian police degraded and embarrassed themselves by doing so and finally two consenting adults should be able to do absolutely whatever they want to each other as long as it has no negative impact on the society; that’s what liberty is all about. I hope you can see why Nigeria isn’t moving forward – her people focus on issues that have absolutely nothing to do with the progress of the nation. There are real criminals out there for the NPF, EFCC etc to chase eg the pedophile who raped this 10yr old, Senator Yerima and in my opinion almost all our politicians. But no, we all focus on Bobrisky, pretty Mike and women that want to have one-night stands.

      I love this straw man argument your posing, There are no “universal truths” sir, you’ve just refused to question your myopic existence, that’s why you’re arguing on BN about whether 2 men are kpanshing or not as long as it’s not your bumhole shouldn’t be so pressed sir.

      Do I like what “pretty mike” did no, but yes those were two grown women (unless they’ve come out to say that they were under duress when asked to have leashes around their necks, then I have no opinion on that) It’s a kink should not be a crime.Some people like to be choked in bed, is that my thing? no, it’s their business.

      Prostitution is one of the oldest professions, rather than make it outright illegal it should be regulated The main issue in this case which we can all agree on is the abuse of the child gay or not, he did not deserve this trauma.

      at some point, “universially accepted truths” were that twins were evil and needed to be executed, at some point it was illegal for people of a darker hue to exist as human beings (not slaves). At some point the earth was flat. Question your socially conditioned thought process sir charming.

      You just saw “gay” and rushed down here to type rubbish.

    Is there a reason you guys are censoring comments on this post? It’s annoying when i take the time to type a comment only for it not to get posted or show up like years later when it’s no longer relevant.

    Why punish a 10 year old ? This a pure case of child sexual abuse. An adult engaed in a sexual act with a boy coercively and you leave the spoiler and start to harm the victim more.

    This boy has been mentally by whichever adult that molested him and the father is worsening the whole thing by punishing him. If that boy is not afraid of the father and sees him as friend, he would have told him the first time such attempt was made on him. Parents befriend your kids stop scaring them away, they will hide a lot from you if continue to instill uneeded fear in them.

    The police need to investigate and arrest the men who raped the boy(s). Where’s Nigeria heading to?

    Whatever alleged “defilement” that boy may have suffered in the hands of the said politician cannot compare with what he has gone through under his own father.

    Can you see how enacting a law that punishes homosexuals encourages, and justifies, ignorant people’s violence towards anyone that displays homosexual traits or engages in homosexual behaviour, regardless of age? How do we peach tolerance and hope for societal attitudes to change when the government is singing a different tune?

    I’m so sick of the level of wickedness present in Nigeria.
    I constantly struggle to reconcile this wickedness with how much we call on God in this country.
    It’s honestly not hard to see so many people are turning their backs on religion.
