A Seventeen years old resident of Viniklang, Lawali Mori, in the Girei Local Government Area of Adamawa has been taken to police custody for raping a male fowl.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Adamawa State Command, Suleiman Ngoruje, disclosed the arrest of the teenager in a statement on Friday.

Nguroje said Mori was arrested for having unlawful carnal knowledge of a cock, a crime he described as one that was against the order of nature.

According to the statement, the arrest was the result of a complaint filed by one Esther Dimas, a resident of Viniklang, after she caught the suspect in the act.

The suspect during interrogation by the police had revealed he sexually assaulted the male fowl. The police statement further said Mori “could not give any cogent reasons for carrying out the act.”

However, the state Commissioner of Police, Afolabi Babatola, while expressing worries over the act of bestiality, called for a discreet investigation into the matter.
