“The Gender Section is also investigating one Abdullahi Garuba, a 58-year-old security man attached to Oshodi Isolo Local Government Area secretariat, for allegedly defiling two minors.
“Troubled started for Garuba when concerned citizens, who couldn’t understand what business he had with little boys that trooped in and out of his security post which also doubled as his residence, leaked information to the mothers of two little boys, ages 13 and 11, when they saw them coming out of his abode, at 2pm on Saturday, November 10, 2018.
