Two men, who alleged­ly gang-raped a teenage girl, were on Tuesday re­manded in Kano Prisons on the orders of a magistrate court.
The Chief Magistrate, Mu­hammad Jibril, who gave the order, said the accused should remain behind bars till the next date of adjournment.
Muhammad Abubakar, 58, and Ali Garba, 45, both resi­dents of Hotoro Quarters, Kano, are facing a charge of rape.
Earlier, Prosecutor Suleiman Danladi told the court that Mur­tala Aminu (elder brother of the victim) of the same address re­ported the case at Hotoro Police Division on Sept. 11, 2016.
Danladi said the accused committed the offence some­time in May 2016 at Hotoro Quarters.
“The duo had deceived and lured the 13-year-old girl to dif­ferent locations to rape her.
“As a result, the victim became pregnant,’’ he said.
The prosecutor said the vic­tim was taken to Muhammad Abdullahi Wase Specialist Hos­pital, Kano, for examination where she was confirmed preg­nant.
The offence contravened Sec­tion 283 of the Penal Code.The duo, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge preferred against them. The case has been ad­journed to Jan. 18 for mention. (NAN)
