Gay Islamic Teacher Who Sodomised 35 Boys In Sabon Gari, Kontagora Niger State Jailed 7 Years With Hard Labour
A man identified as Abubakar Abdullahi has been jailed in Minna Niger State.
The 33-year-old who works as a Quranic teacher (Alfa) was today sentenced to 7 years in jail with hard labour by a Magistrates Court in Minna Niger State.
The resident of Sabon Gari in Kontagora area of the state was charged with unnatural offence contrary to section 284 of the penal code.
The Police Prosecutor, ASP. Daniel Ikwoche, told the court that one Murtala Abdullahi, a Hisbah Commander in Kontagora Local Government Area reported the matter at the ‘A’ Police Division in Kontagora on July 22.
Ikwoche said the complainant alleged that the accused lured 35 of his pupils who are between the ages of 9 and 14 years into his room and had anal intercourse with them on different occasions between March and July.
When the charge was read to him, he pleaded guilty and begged the court for leniency. He admitted having anal sex with all the male pupils.
The prosecutor thereafter prayed the court to try him summarily in line with section 157 of the Criminal Procedure Code.
In her ruling, Magistrate Hauwa Yusuf, sentenced Abdullahi to seven years in prison with hard labour.
Yusuf, however, said the convict will have the option of a N2 million fine after serving the first four years of his sentence.
