Kano Debunks Social Media Video On Sexual Molestation Of Pupil

The Kano State government has debunked social media posting of claims of sexual molestation of a minor in one of the public primary school in the state.

The state Commissioner of Education, Umar Doguwa stated this on Monday while briefing journalist on Monday, saying issues of concern should be channelled to the appropriate authorities rather than to social media.


A Kano based activist, Mansurah Isah had posted a video on social media calling attention on how a primary school girl was sexually molested by some group of boys in the said school.


Doguwa however called on the public to direct any subject of concern to government as they are freely available to listen.

“We don’t want people going on air speculating what actually didn’t take place in any of our schools.

“We were able to reach her and she showed remorse and assured us she is going to trash the video as a way of moving this state forward. This is because she didn’t do due diligence before releasing the vedo in the first place,” he said.

The Commissioner however thanked the media, the Kano Hisbah Command, Ministry of Health, and State Universal Basic Education (SUBEB) for their timely interventions in resolving the situation and hoped that the situation would not repeat itself.
