March 6, 2016 – Picture: Patience Paul, 14-Year-Old Idoma Christian Girl From Benue State Forcefully Converted To Islam Rescued From Imam’s House In Sokoto

14-year-old Patience Paul, another schoolgirl who was allegedly abducted and converted to Islam in Sokoto State, has now been rescued and will be reunited with her parents, The Cable reports.

Her case which generated national interest this week following that of the Bayelsa teenager, Ese Oruru, who was abducted by her lover without her parents’ consent. Patience’s parents had reported her missing since August 12, 2015, with unconfirmed reports suggesting she was kidnapped and taken to the palace of the Sultan of Sokoto for forceful conversion.

Sokoto state governor, Aminu Tambuwal immediately ordered investigation into the issue.Patience, who was 14 at the time of her abduction, was found on Friday night at the house of one Malam Ibrahim, who calls himself Sarkin Baki (King of strangers).

Some hisbah (Sharia police) personnel had taken Patience to an imam in Runjin Sambo area of Sokoto with a claim that she wanted to convert to Islam. The imam asked of her age and was told she was 14. He sought the opinion of the Sultanate Council who directed the imam not to proceed because she was underage and could not make such a “weighty decision” yet.

He was instructed to let her go, but the Imam then informed the hisbah. Rather than let her return to her family house, they took her to the Sarkin Baki who claims he provides residence to indigent persons.

The “king of strangers” then kept her in his house since September.
When investigators met with him on Friday night, Patience was seen with his other children and family members. He claimed he adopted the girl because he didn’t want to let her be with the hisbah.

He, however, allowed her to be attending both Islamic and government junior secondary school for her education.

A police source disclosed that when interviewed, Patience claimed she was afraid of returning home because of possible reprisal from her siblings.

Paul Isaac Adaji, father of the teenager, had raised the alarm about her daughter’s disappearance, but it did not gain traction until the case of Oruru started playing out.

Adaji, an Idoma from Benue state, said his daughter was forcefully abducted by hisbah in Gidan Kukah, Runjin Sambo area Sokoto, on August 12, 2015.

    This is what i keep saying often time and some folks will start reacting to my comments unnecessarily, telling me to live and lets live and saying all sorts of gibberish nonesense talks.

    I expect to see the objective comments of such people on this matter here and right now. “awon ITK, awon olori buruku“.

    Now, to the matter on ground. If your religion is founded on TRUTH, why force people to joint it? Why does it now seem to become the trend among all the Northern Emirs to directs and instructs their subjects to go fish for Christians teenage girls, to forcefully converts, (sorry, INITIATES) them into this their Cult of an everlasting bondage the called Islamic Religion?

    For Christ sake, what is the meaning of all this Madness and crave for Christian girls? Why does it seems as if the FG ain‘t taking any measures in this regards? Why are they silent? Ohoo..maybe because we are a peace loving people, right? So, the now misconstued our silence as Timidity, ehn? Isn‘t it? Or let me just say… they capitalized on our calmness and comportment to expliots our girls for the advantage of their foolish and uninformed reasons, isn‘t it?

    I am asking all this SALIENT questions because, the very day any possesed barboon, baptized in the river of foolishness and stupidity will make the greatest mistake of his miserable life and try to abdupt any of my three lovely sisters and he is caught, I am D Hunter, the son of my Father.
    I promise, not a threat, that what I will do to him, even the devil their master himself will be greatly surprised.
    That in his next sorry life, he will RECARNATE (if there is anything like that at all) into an animal in the forest instead. TILL then, let me…

    Trash! What type of nonsense is all these? The same story that played out in Kano. She wanted to convert to Islam and sultanate was consulted, and they were directed to let her go due to her age, then taken to sarki Baki instead. Is this not the same story in Kano? Who is fooling who? Stop this nonsense pls

    For the sake of God what is this madness and rush by this Muslim people to kidnap some teenagers and forcefully convert them to Islam? is that there new plan? i as a person iam sick and tired of there madness in the name of religion. If one Muslim convert to Christianity they will say its a Taboo, they will hunt down the person or kill the person, yet they have the gut to kidnap another person child and forcefully convert such a person to Islam.I think they sud be given #EYE4ANEYE.
