Man remanded for allegedly defiling nine-year-old girl in Kaduna

A Chief Magistrates’ Court in Kaduna on Tuesday ordered that a mason, Ahmed Usman, who allegedly defiled a nine-year-old girl be remanded in a correctional centre pending legal advice.

The police charged Usman with defilement.

Acording to report, Magistrate Ibrahim Emmanuel, who did not take Usman’s plea, ordered the police to duplicate the case file and send same to the office of the Director of Public Prosecution, for legal advice.

Emmanuel, who frowned at the high rate of rape of minors, adjourned the case until Jan. 12 for hearing.

Earlier, the prosecuting officer, Insp Chidi Leo, told the court that Usman, who resides in Kawo, Kaduna State, committed the offence on December 2, at his residence.

The prosecutor said Usman lured the girl into his room and defiled her.

The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of Section 207 of the Kaduna State Penal Code Law, 2017.
