The Nigerian police and Operatives of INTERPOL have arrested two Kano based suspects, Ibrahim Muazzam Mohammad Aminu and Mohammad Tahir Umar who are members of an International child porn syndicate which sexually abuse and take undue advantage of underage girls and disseminate the video recordings of the illicit sexual act on an international social media Whatsapp group chat known as “Pervertidos”, owned and managed by a Brazilian called Adriana.
The suspects were arrested following intelligence received from the INTERPOL NCB, Brasilia.
A statement by the Police said, “Exhibits recovered from the suspects include, 3 mobile phones and a Laptop computer.
“Forensic investigations carried out by the Police team on the gadgets revealed the series of pornographic videos with underage girls which the suspects shared on the internet for a fee denominated in US Dollars.”
However, the IGP advised parents and guardians to keep a close watch on their children and wards and report any incidents of abuse against women and children.
He expresses his displeasure with the prevailing culture of silence in concealing crimes against women and children and calls for improved collaboration with the Police, assuring that the Force is well repositioned to protect women and children and confront violent crimes in the country.
The police said the suspects will be arraigned in court on completion of investigations.
