27 August 2012, 15:53

Gusau - An Upper Sharia Court in has released on bail, three women accused of gripping the manhood of one Abdurrahman Suleiman until he slumped.

The accused were first arraigned on Aug. 13 but the case was adjourned by the judge, Malam Sani Magami, to allow the prosecution to present its witnesses.

The women, Hannatu Ibrahim, Rukayya Hassan and Wasila Hassan, all of GRA, Gusau, were said to have attacked Suleiman following a disagreement between them over the use of a mobile phone.

At Monday’s hearing, the prosecution presented a witness, Muawuyya Salisu, 22, who told the court that the ladies had attacked the victim, a member of the First Aid Group deployed to maintain peace and order at a Ramadan preaching event, pulled his manhood until he fainted and was rescued by his colleagues.

The witness further told the court that the accused had held their hands over Suleiman's mouth to prevent him from he could shouting for help.

The prosecuting police officer, Hamisu Ibrahim, said the women , charged with criminal conspiracy, criminal force and assault, had committed an offence contrary to sections 97 and 265 of the Penal Code.

The defence counsel, Mr Muttaqa Ahmed, asked the court to enter a not guilty plea for his clients and wondered why the media would celebrate the case as that of rape.

The judge adjourned the case to Sept. 10  for continuation of hearing.
