A Mararaba Upper Area Court in Nasarawa State on Friday remanded a 25-year-old man in prison custody for allegedly raping a nine-year-old girl.
The accused, who lives in Angwan Hausawa, Masaka, is charged with having canal knowledge of the teenager after administering her with drugs.
The prosecutor, Insp. Joseph Ahua, told the court that the victim’s parents reported the matter at the New Karu Police Station on Oct. 26.
He said that the offence contravened Section 283 of the Penal Code.
According to the section, whoever has canal intercourse against the order of nature with any man, woman or animal shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to 14 years, or fine.
The accused pleaded not guilty, and the Presiding Officer, Mr Vincent Gwehemba, ordered the accused to be remanded in prison custody, pending final investigation into the matter.
He adjourned the case to Nov. 20 for further hearing. (NAN)
