30-year old in court for molesting 12-year-old boy

A 30-year-old porter, Abdullahi Saminu, has been arraigned before a Katsina Senior Magistrates’ Court for allegedly molesting a 12-year-old boy at the Tudun Malaima Quarter in the Funtua Local Government Area of the state.

Saminu was alleged to have molested the boy in a classroom at the Sambo Primary School, which is located in the area.

The incident was said to have occurred around 11am on August 17, 2019.

The victim’s father, Umar Mairaya, reported the incident at the Funtua Central Police Station a few minutes after it occurred.

Mairaya told the police that the accused person was his neighbour.

Based on the report, the police arrested Saminu and charged him for committing what they described as an unnatural offence.

The police prosecutor, Sergeant Lawal Bello, said the accused was charged under Section 281 of the Penal Code Law.

He asked for an adjournment to enable the police conclude investigation into the matter before proceeding with the trial.

The presiding magistrate, Hajiya Fadile Dikko, granted the request and ordered that the accused person be remanded in prison custody until October 8, 2019, when the case would come up for mention.(Punch)
