An Area Court sitting in Kasuwan Nama, Jos, on February 5th, 2018 sentenced one Musty Ruwanu, a businessman, to three years imprisonment for raping a 9-year-old girl.

The Prosecutor, Sgt. Ibrahim Gukwat, told the court that Musty had lured the innocent girl to his room and raped her on the same day the girl was brought from Kaduna to stay with her relations in Jos.

“When her relations noticed that the girl was missing, they searched for her and found her in the accused room.”

“They discovered that the accused had forcefully had canal knowledge of the girl,” he said.

The presiding Judge, Mr Yahaya Mohammed, delivering judgement sentenced Musty to three years imprisonment without option of fine, after the accused had pleaded guilty to the offence.

“I am very sorry, I will never do it again, it’s the devil’s work, please have mercy on me,” he begged.
