The presiding Judge, Justice Abdulmumini Adamu, in his ruling, ordered that the suspect, be remanded in prison custody for allegedly luring and molesting the boy sexually.

The prosecutor added that the suspect had been repeatedly carrying out the act on the boy which, according to him, contravenes section 284 of the penal court.

After reading the charges to the accused by the court, the prosecutor sought to be given additional days by the court to enable the police deepen their investigation which the court granted.

The judge therefore ordered that the accused be remanded at the Bauchi Correctional Centre. The judge also fixed February 5, 2020, for further hearing of the suit to allow the prosecuting police officer time to further investigate the matter and produce witnesses on it.

The victim’s father shortly after the court session told Journalists that he was at the court to observe the proceedings and to see how the court would administer justice  on the matter.  Punch
