Court sentences 60-year-old man to death by stoning for child defilement

An Upper Shari’a Court sitting in Kano on Wednesday sentenced a 60-year-old man, Abdu, to death by stoning for defiling a 12-year-old girl.

He was convicted on a one-count charge of rape contrary to Section 126 of Kano State Shari’a Penal Code Law 2000.

The judge, Ibrahim Sarki-Yola, said the convict pleaded guilty to the charge.

The judge, however, gave him a 30-day grace within which to appeal the judgment.
