A 30-year-old water vendor, Musbahu Abdulaziz, was on Wednesday remanded by a Kano Magistrates’ Court, for allegedly raping a minor.

Abdulaziz was arraigned on a count of rape.

The Chief Magistrate, Muhammad Jibril, ordered the remand of the accused in prison and adjourned the case to September 26, for mention.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Insp. Pogu Lale, told the court that one Asiya Musa, of Diso Quarters Kano, reported the case at Gwale Police Division Kano, on Aug 16.

“On Aug.11, at about 8.30p.m., the accused deceived and lured the complainant’s nine-year-old niece into a house situated at Diso Quarters Kano and forcefully had unlawful sexual intercourse with her,” he said.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.
