Man, Son Rape 9-Year-Old Girl in Katsina

by Happynaija

A 65-year-old man, Lawal Angala, and his son, Isah, 19 have been remanded in prison custody for allegedly raping their neighbour’s nine-year-old daughter.


Hajiya Fadile Dikko, who presided at a Katsina senior magistrates’ court where the accused persons

were arraigned for the offence on Monday, directed that they be remanded in the

prison custody till June 14, 2018 when their case would come up for mention.


The police had told the court that the accused persons,

who resided at Safana town in Kastina State, committed the offence on May 2.


The victim’s mother, Shamsiya Abdullahi,

reported the incident at Safana police division shortly after.


The court heard that the accused persons lured the victim into Angala’s room where

they allegedly took turns in having carnal knowledge of her.


The accused persons are now facing rape charge, an offence which the police say,

is contrary to Section 283 of the Penal Code.


Hajiya Dikko did not take the pleas of the accused persons as she reminded them

that their offence is only triable by the high court.


Police prosecutor, Inspector Sani Ado, told the court that investigation into

the case was in progress and requested for a new date.


Meanwhile, a 20-year-old farmer, Hassan Sule, has also been remanded in prison custody on

the orders of the magistrate court for criminal trespass, intimidation and rape.


Sule, according to the police, on April 26, ‘criminally trespassed’ into the house of one

Salamatu Alhaji Adamu, 50 at Dantakum village in the Dan Musa Local Government Area of the state

and forcefully had sexual intercourse with her after threatening to kill her with a cutlass.


Salamatu’s husband, Alhaji Adamu reported the incident at Dan Musa police station,

leading to Sule’s arrest.
