A 32-year-old islamic teacher identified as Mallam Ibrahim Salley has been smoked out of his hiding place by the police for allegedly abusing children sexually.
He was arrested by the police at his hideout at Asensu Bar in Ashaiman, away from the Valco Flats location where he lived.A neighbour had expressed concern about the activities of the Mallam (or teacher) but he was asked to provide evidence by the persons to whom he complained. When he finally came out with a pictorial evidence of the man, naked, as one of the pupils was sucking his penis, the picture spread quickly in the neighbourhood.
Mallam Ibrahim Salley had absconded after he was physically confronted by residents who saw pictures in which pupils of his Islamic school he runs at Valco Flats, a suburb of Ashaiman were sucking his penis.
It was gathered that he also has sexual intercourse with the pupils.
Reacting to sexual abuse, the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharubutu, expressed disgust at the incident and prayed that adequate investigation would be conducted and if indeed the said Mallam Ibrahim Salley was engaged in the sexual abuse of kids, he should be dealt with according to law.
He said, â€œIt is against both the law and Islam to engage in the sexual abuse of kids as the man is alleged to have done. I condemn such an act, if it was really done, in no uncertain terms, and ask that the law is applied appropriately when it is proven beyond reasonable doubt that he had committed the crime.â€
