A businessman in Adamawa state, Abubakar Barkindo, has been arrested for allegedly having oral sex with two brothers, aged 8 and 9.
SaharaReporters reports that Barkindo, who admitted to committing the act, however, said it was to test if his manhood was functional. The businessman, who sells engine oil and other lubricants in Yola, the state capital, allegedly lured the two boys into his apartment at the 50 Housing Units at Jambutu, where he ejaculated into their mouths after thrusting in and out.
The father of the sexually abused boys, while searching for the boys, was told by a neighbor to check Barkindo’s apartment, where he reportedly found his boys with semen dripping from their mouths.
“I came out looking for the boys in front of the house and was told Barkindo took them into his house. I suspected his motive, so I badged in only to see my kids with sperm in their mouths,” the father said.
The suspect was arraigned at a Chief Magistrate Court I on Thursday, February 17, where he pleaded guilty to the offense, which is contrary to section 263 of penal code law of the state.
Narrating why he had oral sex with the boys, he said he committed the act to test if his manhood was functional; as according to him, he had experienced erectile dysfunction in recent times.
“I noticed some time back that my penis was no more functional and even complained to my mother about it. I got some herbs with a view to treating it, and later decided to test whether it had resumed duty by asking the boys to play with it,” he said
In the First Information Report of the police, the prosecutor, Sergeant Sawe Nicholas informed the court that the defendant was caught by the father of the boys.
After his guilty plea, the judge, Abdullahi Digil ordered that Barkindo be remanded in prison custody and that the case file should be transmitted to the Department of Public Prosecutions for legal advice.
He adjourned the matter to March 7, 2022.
