Man arrested for allegedly raping four minors in Kano

10 June 2016, 06:33

Kano - A Kano Magistrates’ Court on Thursday remanded a 30-year-old man, Habibu Yuguda, in prison custody for allegedly having carnal knowledge of four young girls.

The accused, residing at Kofar Fada Village, near Kano, is standing trial for rape.

He, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The Chief Magistrate, Hajiya Maryam Sabo, ordered remand of the accused in prison custody and adjourned the case to July 19 for further mention.

The prosecutor, Insp. Shuaibu Musa, told the court that three complainants, Yusuf Musa, Abdullahi Yahaya and Yahuza Sale, all of Gezawa in Kano, reported the matter at the Gezawa Police Division in Kano.

He said that about two weeks ago, Yuguda lured their daughters, ages 11 and 12 years and had carnal knowledge of them.

The prosecutor explained that the accused gave them a ride in his car and took them to his house at Kofar Fada Village and forcefully had sexual intercourse with them.

""He, thereafter, gave the four girls N50 each,’’ Musa said.

The victims, the prosecutor said, were later taken to the Gezawa General Hospital for treatment when their parents discovered that they had been defiled.

Musa said that the offence contravened Sections 283 of the Penal Code.
