BBOG co-founder, Aisha Yesufu

Co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) Movement Aisha Yesufu has urged Daily Trust to investigate the alleged sexual abuse of boys in Kaduna.

Mrs Yesufu tweeted on Monday, alleging many maintain silence over the trend.

She suggested that the newspaper should begin its investigation from Hayin banki in Kaduna North.

“Dear @daily_trust Can you to have your investigative journalists do a story on the numerous boys that are being sodomised?

“There is a culture of silence while many pretend they do not have these heinous men who are raping boys. Hayin Banki in Kaduna is a place to start from,” Yesufu wrote.

In 2019, police in Kaduna rescued 300 hostages all males after a raid on a building in Rigasa, Igabi Local Government Area of the state.

The boys said they were raped in the facility made to look like an Islamic centre.

Police revealed that some of the hostages were nationals of Burkina Faso, Mali and other African countries.
