I raped 7-year-old boy – Cobbler confesses

A Magistrates’ Court in Minna on Wednesday, remanded a cobbler, Tahiru Abdullahi, 55, in prison for allegedly engaging in homosexuality with a boy.

When the charge of committing an unnatural offence was read to the accused, he pleaded guilty and begged the court for leniency.

The Prosecutor, Insp. Muazu Abdullahi, had told court that one Abubakar Mohammed of Galadima Area in Kontagora, Niger reported the matter at a police station on August 6.

Abdullahi said that the complainant alleged that the defendant lured his 7-year-old son into his house and had sexual intercourse with him through his anus on two separate occasions.

He said the defendant confessed to committing the crime during police investigation.

Presiding Magistrate, Mariam Kings, declined to take the plea of the accused, saying that the court lacked jurisdiction to try the case.

Kings directed the police to forward the case file to the state’s director of public prosecutions for advice and adjourned to September 7.
