Kano State villages head rapes, infects 13-yr-old Females with HIV

There was anger in Kano yesterday, as
residents got to know about the infection of a
13-year-old girl with HIV after being raped by
the Village Head of Goron Maje, Dambatta Local
Government Area of the state.
Vanguard learned that when the victim's suitor
requested for a HIV test as a wedding
prerequisite, she was confirmed positive.
The suitor called off the wedding and the
matter was brought to the public domain when
the girl's parents lodged a formal complaint
before Kano Emirate Council.
The Village Head, who is believed to be in his
early 60s, allegedly lured the 13 years old to a
corner shop attached to his residence some
months ago and raped her.
Security sources in Kano said the teenager
confirmed to her parents how she lost her
virginity to the village head some months back
in a violent encounter, adding that the village
head threatened to kill her if she told anyone.
Kano Emirate Council intervenes
Meanwhile, the Kano Emirate Council, through
Galadiman Kano, Alhaji Abbas Sanusi, has
announced the suspension of the village head
to pave way for a full investigation.
Alhaji Sanusi, while announcing the suspension,
however, explained that the action by the
council was sequel to "a formal complaint
lodged by the parents of the teenager."
He said: "We have commen-ced a formal
investigation to ascertain the culpability of the
traditional title holder to enable the palace apply
appropriate punishment."
Security sources confirmed that the high profile
suspect has been taken into custody by Hisba
officials, who are yet to hand him over to the
police.
