Man In Court For Defiling 9-Year-Old Girl

A 35-year-old man, Nasiru Amadu, who allegedly defiled a nine-year-old girl, was on Friday arraigned in a Kano Chief Magistrates’ Court.

Amadu, who resides at Kofar Yamma village, Tofa Local Government Area of Kano State, is facing a count charge of defilement.

The prosecutor, Insp. Iliyasu Muhammad, told the court that one Mohammed Sadiku of Tofa Local Government Area, reported the case at Tofa Police Division on May 5.

He said that on May 2 at about 8.30p.m. the accused deceived and lured the complainant’s nine-year-old daughter into an uncompleted building located in Tofa.

“The accused defiled her, which caused her harm,” he said. The offence contravened Section 283 of the Penal Code.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge. The Chief Magistrate, Hajiya Halima Nasir, ordered that the accused be remanded in prison and adjourned the case until July 10 for mention.
