Farmer Remanded In Prison For Sleeping With His 20-Year-Old Daughter

A Magistrate Court in Minna has ordered the remand of a 20-year-old farmer, Lawali Safiyanu, for allegedly sleeping with his daughter. The accused was docked on a charge of unlawful sexual intercourse with a child. The offence contravenes Section 18 (2) of the 2010 Child Rights Law of Niger state.

According to the Prosecutor, Cpl. Aliyu Malami, who spoke in court, one Dawudu Ahmadu of Nasko Road, Minna, Niger state, reported the case on July 8.

Malami told him that the victim alleged that on the same day at about 2pm, the accused lured his daughter into his room and raped her.

The accused however pleaded not guilty when the charge was read to him.

The prosecutor, then told the court that investigation was still ongoing into the incestuous act, and requested for an adjournment.

He also objected to admitting the accused bail, arguing that it would put their investigations in jeopardy.

Magistrate Amina Musa in her ruling ordered the accused person to be remanded in prison and adjourned the case until Aug. 21.
