A Chief Magistrates’ Court sitting in Kano has ordered the remand of 32-year-old man, Ashiru Adamu, for allegedly defiling a 7-year-old girl.
Adamu, who resides at Gezawa Local Government Area of Kano State, is facing a count charge of act of gross indecency.
The prosecutor, Inspector Aluta Mijinyawa, told the court that one Mariya Muhammad of the same address with the defendant reported the case at Gezawa Police Division on August 10.
Mijinyawa said on the same date at about 8 p.m. the defendant deceived and lured the complainant’s 7-year-old daughter into a school in Gezawa where he assaulted her indecently by forcefully rubbing his manhood on her vagina, which caused her harm.
The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge but the presiding judge, Chief Magistrate Fatima Adamu, ordered that the defendant be remanded in prison custody.
She adjourned the case until October 31, for mention.
