A Chief Magistrates’ Court sitting in Kano has ordered that a 20-year-old man, Tasi’u Adamu be remanded in a Correctional centre for allegedly defiling a four-year-old.
The defendant, who lives in Indabawa Quarters, Kano State, was standing trial on a charge of unnatural offence.
The Prosecutor, Mrs Maryam Jibril, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on November15, 2021.
She alleged that on the same date around 8:00 p.m the defendant entered his neighbour's house situated at Indabawa Quarters and had anal sex with the four-year-old boy.
The defendant, however, denied committing the offence.
According to the prosecutor, the offence contravened the provision of section 284 of the Penal Code.
Chief Magistrate, Auwal Yusuf-Suleiman, ordered that the defendant be remanded in a correctional centre, pending legal advice.
He adjourned the case until January 25, for further mention.
