The statement explains that, the palace guard lured the lady, who was preparing for her wedding and came to seek assistance from the Emir through him (the guard), saying that instead of taking the lady to the Emir, Malam Ahmed Nuhu Bamalli, the suspect lured her to a location where he and his friends’ gang raped her.
The statement further explains that the Council had forwarded the case to the police, demanding a swift investigation and ensure the prosecution of the culprits without delay.
