A Shari’a court sitting in Kano, Kano State, on Monday, ordered the remand of a 17-year-old boy who pleaded guilty to sexual assault on a six-year-old girl.
The Khadi, Malam Nura Yusuf-Ahmad, ordered the remand pending a medical report on the victim and adjourned to August 2, for sentencing following a guilty plea entered by the boy.
Earlier, the prosecutor, Mr Aliyu Abideen, told the court that the defendant about a week ago at the Rangaza Quarters, Kano, lured the girl (who are tenants in the defendant’s house) to her grandmother’s room and sexually assaulted her.
The victim, he said, was taken to the Murtala Muhammad Specialist Hospital, Kano, for medical examination. (NAN)
