Man lures deaf-mute with N200, impregnates her
A firewood cutter, Samaila Bala, has been remanded by a Shari’a Court at Rigasa in Kaduna, for allegedly luring and impregnating a deaf-mute, Bilkisu Usman.
The defendant pleaded guilty to the offence.
Mr Bala said he admired the 18-year-old-girl and gave her N200 whenever they met.
The prosecution counsel said Fatima Hussaini, the mother to the girl, reported the matter at the Rigasa Police Division on August 7, alleging that Mr Bala deceived her daughter into the act.
The prosecution alleged that the defendant took the girl to an uncompleted building and had sex with her which resulted in her pregnancy.
According to the prosecution, the girl is 19-week-old pregnant and the court should look into the matter and grant the girl justice.
The judge, Salisu Abubakar-Tureta, said the court would pass judgment on August 30 and ordered that the defendant be remanded until that date.
