The 39 year-old woman who resides at 

Rugar Hanwa in Sabon Gari Local Government, 

was arrested on December 21.

She confessed that she had been luring women, 

including her own daughters and nieces, 

to the bandits for sexual pleasure.

Maryam said her clients were paying her 

N20,000 and that the women were being 

ferried to the forest on motorbikes.

Also arrested was a girl named Fatima Jibril, 

who, in connivance with her boyfriend, 

Muslim Abubakar, both residents of the 

Sakadadi area in Sabon Gari, had also been 

supplying women to the bandits.

The syndicate was exposed when the girls 

they had earlier procured from the criminals 

in the forest couldn’t return.

Another woman, Jummai Ibrahim, was arrested 

on the suspicion that she had been engaging 

in an affair with the bandits’ kingpin in the forest.

Jummai said she submitted herself to the 

bandits’ kingpin to protect her children 

and her father from their wraths because 

the bandits threatened to kill them, 

even after they had rustled the family’s cattle.

Some of the women said they had passed 

the night only once with the bandits.

One of them said the gunmen were living 

alongside their wives, only that they are 

hosted at different locations separate 

from their families.
