Paedophilia is a serious problem in Nigeria! Just read this sickening story about a 40 year old teacher from Yobe State – Shaaibu Yakubu Abdullahi, who was arrested, last week, by men of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) for allegedly r*ping a 6-month-old baby girl.

This pig raped her so bad that he ruptured the intestines of this baby girl!

The commandant of the NSCDC, Muhammad Gidado Fari, revealed that the teacher allegedly connived with a 10-year-old student in his class, who carried the baby to him from her neighbour’s home to his home where he abused and r*ped the baby.

NGO, National Council of Women Society (NCWS), reported the situation, after which Abdullahi was arrested.

The President of NCWS, Halima Kyari Joda giving an update on the baby’s situation told reporters that the she was taken to the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital for examination and proper treatment.

“You Have To Listen To Save Nigeria”, Emir Of Kano Accuses Buhari Of Not Heeding Advice Like GEJ

EmirOfKano

EmirOfKano

The Emir of Kano, His Highness Muhammadu Sanusi has some strong words for the Muhammadu Buhari led administration in light of the current economic recession Nigeria is going through.

Emir Sanusi who was the former governor of Central Bank of Nigeria during the Goodluck Jonathan era is giving us strong indications that Buhari and his administration are not listening to his advisers and Nigeria could end up worse for it.

He took to his Instagram page where he wrote,

You have to listen. The past Federal administration failed to diversify the nation’s economy during the oil boom. Mr. Buhari should not make the same mistakes. He specifically accused Mr. Jonathan of refusing advice given to him on how to turn the economy around. Warnings of impending economic doom were also ignored by the former president. President Buhari’s administration is toeing the same path like the Jonathan government. If this government continues to behave the way the last government behaved, we will end up where Jonathan ended.

He then goes on to talk about how a select few have become billionaires by devaluing the Naira.
