65-year-old security guard bags 5yr jail-term over rape



An Upper Area Court sitting in Jos, Plateau State, on Thursday  jailed a 65-year-old security guard, Sani Muhammad,  who raped a  minor for five years .

It was gathered that the judge, Yahaya Mohammed, sentenced Muhammad as he admitted committing the offence stressing that, “the sentence would serve as a deterrent to others.”

The prosecutor, Sgt. Ibrahim Gukwat, had told the court that one Ummulkhair Iliyasu, the victim’s teacher, reported the case at the Laranto Police Station on Oct.12.

He said that the convict lured the 10- year- old girl, a pupil of  Alyasura Private School to the security room,  where he  forcefully had unlawful carnal knowledge of the girl.

Gukwat said the offence was contrary to Section 282 of the Penal Code
