Pedophile Nigerian Senator quizzed by Anti-Human trafficking Agency
Embattled Nigerian Senator, former Zamfara State governor and champion of Sharia law, Sani Ahmed Yerima, has been arrested by the National Agency for Prohibition and Trafficking In Persons (NAPTIP), for marrying an Egyptian minor. The senator was invited to the office of the agency at Zone 5 in Abuja earlier today. Yerima was interrogated for about two hours before he was later released on personal recognizance. Yerima, who has other wives, has been in worldwide hot water recently for adding a 13 year-old Egyptian girl, believed to be a daughter of his limousine driver in Cairo, to his haul. His despicable action has attracted local and international condemnation from women groups and members of the Nigerian Senate. But Yerima, shameless, has tried to justify his behaviour as being in line with Islam.
The former governor has faced protests from women's groups in Nigeria, including the North.
