Kano State Police Command has arrested one Ibrahim Maikaji, the father of the girl who was circumcised by some local barbers at Sabuwar Kaura village in Doguwa Local Government Area.

The Public Relations Officer of the command, DSP Magaji Majiya, disclosed this while briefing newsmen shortly after presenting the suspects to newsmen in Kano on Tuesday.

Majiya said the command had also arrested the three traditional barbers who forcefully held her and used sharp object to operate on her, thereby causing grievous injury to her.

The Emir of Kano, Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II, had handed over the case to the Police Commissioner, Mr Rabi’u Yusuf, after the girl was brought to the palace.

“We have arrested the father who mishandled his biological daughter to local barbers for genital mutilation.

“This operation was cruelly carried out and it caused grievous injury to the genital organ of the victim,” the police spokesman said.

He gave the names of the three suspected barbers as Shu’aibu Wanzam, Muhammadu Garba and Aminu Ali.

Majiya said all the suspects were undergoing interrogation for criminal conspiracy and causing grievous hurt, and assured that they would soon be arraigned in court for proper prosecution.

He warned parents to desist from such illegal acts as anyone caught would be arrested and prosecuted.

      Sorry Grace u don’t have to be biased. Female Genital Mutilation is not an Hausa Muslim practice. It is predominantly an African, Asia and Middle east tradition. It is believed such girls that are not circumcised will be over active sexually.

      In 2016 UNICEF estimated that 200 million women living today in 30 countries—27 African countries, Indonesia, Iraqi Kurdistan and Yemen have undergone the procedures.

      So read wide before commenting and creating tribal and religious hatred.

    It is painful that in this digital age some creatures from the mountains are still operating with Analog mentality. Shame on them all!
