by Chinwe Okafor


A middle-aged man has been sentenced to 15 years imprisonment for raping a seven-year-old girl by the Bauchi State High Court presided over by the state Chief Judge, Justice Rabi Umar.

Abdullahi was found guilty on the ground that his voluntary confessional statement corroborated with the oral evidence tendered by the victim.

The victim explained how the convict forced her into his room and had unlawful canal knowledge of her as a result of which she was injured in her private parts.

Umar said the result of a medical examination confirmed the injury she sustained in her private parts as a result of the rape.

After a plea for leniency by the counsel to the accused, Dahiru Abdulhamid, Umar sentenced the accused to 15 years imprisonment from the date he was arraigned in court on March 5, 2012. The justice also fined the convict N3,000.
