Man of 54years bags two years imprisonment for raping nine- year-old girl


A Plateau Upper Area Court sitting in
Kasuwan Nama, Jos on Monday
sentenced a 57 - year - old man,
Abdullahi Yusuf , to two years
imprisonment for raping a nine - year -
old girl .
The judge, Mr Mohammed Yahaya,
handed down the sentence after Yusuf
pleaded guilty to the crime and begged
the court for leniency .
In his plea, the convict admitted guilt
and attributed his actions to the devil.
“ It was the devil that made me do it;
have mercy on me , I will not do it
again ,” he pleaded.
The judge did not , however , give the
convict an option of fine , adding that
the sentence was meant to serve as a
deterrent to those who might want to
engage in similar acts .
Earlier, the police prosecutor , Insp. U.
Edwin, told the court that the accused
committed the act on April 20 .
Edwin said that the accused lured the
girl into his room and forcefully had
canal knowledge of her and
threatened to kill her if she ever
mentioned it to anyone.
The prosecutor said that the offence
contravened Sections 283 and 285 of
the Penal Code .
