56-year-old man arraigned over alleged rape teenager

A federal high court sitting in Kano  has arraigned a 56-year-old man, Bature Musa, on Thursday for having unlawful carnal knowledge of a 13-year-old girl.

The Prosecutor, Abdullahi Babale, told the court that the accused was arraigned on a charge of rape.

He said the accused, an indigene of Agadasawa area of Dala in Kano, had unlawful carnal knowledge of the 13-year-old girl by taking advantage of her at Koki Quarters in the area.

Babale said the accused was arraigned for the offence which was contrary and punishable under Section 16(1) of the Trafficking in Persons Act of  2015.

Justice Saleh Kogo, however, adjourned the case to Dec. 1 for ruling after accepting the prayer of the accused seeking leave of the court to hire a lawyer.
