An Upper Area Court 3, Kasuwan Nama in Jos, on Monday, sentenced a 35-year-old driver, Ahamed Talib to four years in prison for raping a nine-year-old girl.

The prosecutor, O.C Ocho, told the court that the case was reported in March 20 at the Bukuru Police Station by one Ahamad Isah, the victim’s grandfather.

Ocho said that the case was later transferred to the state CID.

The prosecutor told the court that, “Talib, a resident of Akwan Doki, Bukuru, lured the girl to his room with a pack of biscuits and N200.

“He forcefully had carnal knowledge of the girl, and in the process, she sustained injury and was taken to the hospital for treatment.”

According to Ocho, the offence contravenes Section 283 of the Penal Code Law of Northern Nigeria.

The accused, who was sentence on one-count charge of rape, pleaded guilty to the offence and begged the court for mercy.

The judge, Yahaya Mohammed, who passed the sentence without an option of fine, also ordered Talib to pay N1,300 to the minor for compensation and medical expenses.

Mohammed, however, said that it would serve as a deterrent to others, who might want to indulge in such act.
