Man in court for defiling 9-year-old girl

A Kano Magistrates’ Court on Friday ordered a 33-yearold man, Kabiru Garba, to be remanded in custody for allegedly defiling a nine-year-old girl.

Police charged Garba, who resides in Rijiyar Lemo Quarters Kano, with filth.

Chief Magistrate Mustapha Sa’ad-Datti, who did not accept Garba’s plea, ordered the police to forward the case to the public prosecutor for legal advice.

He adjourned the case until November 2, for further mention.

Earlier, prosecution attorney Miss Asma’u Ado told the court that Garba committed the offense on September 29 in Rijiyar Lemo Quarters Kano.

She alleged that around 11 a.m. Garba lured the nine-year-old girl to her room in the Rijiyar Lemo neighborhood and defiled her.

Ado said the offense violated the provisions of article 283 of the Penal Code.
