25Yr Old Man, Aminu Ali Sentenced To Life Imprisonment For Molesting A Boy In Jigawa

A State High Court sitting in Jigawa, presided over by Justice Musa Ubale, on Thursday, sentenced 25-year-old Aminu Ali to life imprisonment for molesting and sodomising a 10-year-old boy (name withheld).

Ali, who hails from Aukayawa Quarters in the Gwaram Local Government Area of the state, was found guilty by the court after the prosecution had established “beyond reasonable doubt” that he lured the victim and engaged in anal sex with him.

To prove its case, the prosecution counsel presented five witnesses and submitted four exhibits, including a medical report.

In his ruling, Justice Ubale said the prosecution had established its case beyond reasonable doubt.

Consequently, the judge sentenced the convict to life imprisonment under Section 3 (2&4) of the Violence Against Person Prohibition Law of Jigawa State (VAPP LAW).

Justice Ubale, however, stated that the convict has the legal right to appeal the judgment within three months.
