A 30-year-old man, Ibrahim Lawal, will on October 3, 2018, appear before a Katsina State Chief Magistrates’ Court over allegation of having anal sex with two eight-year-old boys.
The suspect was also alleged to have threatened the boys with death should they expose the affair, and he has since been remanded in Katsina prison pending the time his case would come up for mention before the magistrate, Hajiya Fadile Dikko.
His ordeal began when the parents of the victims reported the incident at the Bakori police station, leading to Lawal’s arrest and arraignment for unnatural offence and criminal intimidation, which were contrary to sections 284 and 397 of the Penal Code, Punch writes.
The police First Information Report on the incident read, “That you, Ibrahim Lawal, 30 years of Rafin Sarkin, Zanngo Quarters, Bakori, deceived the children into your grinding engine room and had carnal knowledge of them through the anus and intimidated them by telling them that if they tell anybody you would kill them.
“During police investigation, you confessed to have committed the alleged offences contrary to sections 284 and 397 of the Penal Code Law.”
The police prosecutor, Inspector Sani Ado, told the court that investigation was still in progress, hence the request for adjournment of the case till October.
