Police in Katsina State, on Thursday, arraigned one Abdullahi Sani, a 50-year-old man, before the state’s senior magistrate court for raping a three-year-old daughter of his neighbour to death.
Sani, a resident of Funtua Local Government Area, was said to be the caretaker of the victim.
This is even as the Police First Information Report (FIR) on the incident showed that Sani lured the victim to an uncompleted building, cover her mouth and raped her to death.
Police told the court on Thursday that Ibrahim Abdullahi, the father of victim, reported the scenario at Central Police Station, Funtua, on October 12, 2017, leading to Sani’s arrest.
Sani Ado, the police prosecutor, also informed the court that Sani’s offence was contrary to Section 283 and 221 of the Penal Code, saying investigation was still in progress on the case.
The prosecutor, however, pleaded with the court for a new date for the case to be mentioned.
Hajiya Fadila Dikko, the magistrate, granted the prosecutor’s request and adjourned the case till April 9, 2018, directing that Sani should remain in prison custody till then.
