Shame! Court remands 32-year-old man for allegedly raping minor
Kano Chief Magistrates’ Court on Thursday ordered the remand of a 32-year-old man, Ashiru Adamu, for allegedly defiling a 7-year-old girl.
Adamu, who resides at Gezawa Local Government Area of Kano State, is facing one count of gross indecency.
The prosecutor, Insp. Aluta Mijinyawa, told the court that one Mariya Muhammad of the same address with the defendant reported the case at Gezawa Police Division on Aug. 10.
Mijinyawa said on the same date at about 8pm the defendant deceived and lured the complainant’s 7-year-old daughter into a school in Gezawa.
“The defendant assaulted the girl indecently by forcefully rubbing his manhood on her vagina, which caused her harm,’’ he alleged.
The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.
The offence contravened Section 285 of the Penal Code.
The Chief Magistrate, Fatima Adamu, ordered that the defendant be remanded in prison custody.
She adjourned the case until Oct. 31, for a mention. Punch
