Court remands 3 men for allegedly sodomising 11 boys

A Kano Chief Magistrates’ Court ordered on Wednesday the remand of three men for allegedly sodomising 11 underage boys.
The police charged Uzaifa Rabiu, Aminu Ahmed, and Mohammed Bello, all residents of Jakara Quarters, Kano, with an unnatural offence.
The prosecutor, Amina Baba, told the court that the defendants committed the offence between October 2023 and February 2023 at Jakara Quarters, Kano.
Baba alleged that the defendants deceived and lured the 11 victims to their house in Jakara Quarters, Kano, and sodomised them.
The prosecutor, however, opposed the bail application filed by defense counsel.
He argued that the charge against the defendants was serious and urged the court to dismiss the application.
The defendants pleaded not guilty to the charge.

She said that the offence contravened the provisions of Section 284 of the Penal Code.

The defense counsel, Mr. Dalhatu Usman, urged the court to grant his clients bail pursuant to Sections 35 and 36(5) of the 1999 Nigeria Constitution as amended.

Chief Magistrate Auwal Yusuf-Suleiman ordered that the defendants be remanded in a correctional facility and adjourned the matter until March 28 for a ruling in the bail application. (NAN)
