On Tuesday at a Senior Magistrates’ Court, sitting in Kano State, a 30-year-old man, Mamuda Hussaini, was sentenced to nine months imprisonment for sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy.
Senior Magistrate Hanif Sunusi sentenced the convict after he pleaded guilty to gross indecency.
Sunusi gave the convict an option to pay a fine of N100,000.
Earlier, the prosecution counsel, Mr Khalifa Hashim, told the court that one Kabiru Ibrahim of Kundila Housing Estate Kano, reported the matter at Kwalli Police Division Kano, on Feb. 24.
He said that on the same date at about 7.30 a.m., the convict gave the complainant’s 15-year-old son lift on his way to school in his vehicle.
Hashim told the court that on the way the convict made indecent advances by massaging the victim’s body, including his private parts and gave him N500 and his phone number to call him later.
The prosecutor said the offence contravened the provisions of Section 285 of the Penal Code.
