I Will Give You Heavy Judgment For Raping Your Six-Old Grand Daughter -Magistrate Tells 58yrs-Old Man

The Presiding Magistrate of Anguwan Daji Senior Magistrate Court in Minna, Niger State, Hafsat Abdul Bawa has promised to give heavy judgment on 58 year old Ya’u Ibrahim for allegedly raping her six –year-old granddaughter to serve as deterrent to others in the state.

Ya’u Ibrahim of Kundu village in Rafi local government area was arraigned in court on two count charges of unlawful sexual intercourse with a child and exploitation.

The Police Prosecutor, Inspector Aliyu Yakubu Kuta, told the court that the offences contravened section 26 (2) and 27 (2) of the Niger Child Right and Protection Law of Niger State 2021 as amended.

According to the Police First Information Report (FIR), “one Abdullahi Dauda, of Kundu village in Rafi local government area had reported to the Kagara Divisional Police Command that the defendant of the same address lured his six years old grand daughter to his room and sexually abused her”.

The prosecutor explained that during the police investigation, the 58 years old defendant confessed and admitted to the police that he had sexual intercourse with the six years old child in his room.

When the charges were read to Wuse, he pleaded guilty to the two count charge and pleaded for leniency.

Aligning with the submission of the Prosecutor on the matter, Bawa declared that the offence which the defendant is standing trial for is grievous in nature and ordered him to be remanded in correctional facility.

” Let’s get the police investigating officer’s report, the accused statement to the police and his admittance in court for the court to arrive at passing heavy punishment on him to serve as a deterrent to others,” Bawa said.

 She adjourned the case to September 11.
