A 25-year-old cattle rearer, Mohammed Abubakar, has been arraigned at a Magistrate Court in Ilọrin, the Kwara State capital for allegedly inflicting bodily injury on a girl, Mohammed Aisha, over sex.
It was gathered that Mohammed was brought to court on two counts of causing grievous hurt and attempting to commit culpable homicide, an offense that contravened sections 246 and 299 of the penal code law of Kwara state.
According to the Police, the suspect demanded to have sex with the victim and her two younger sisters but they refused and ran for safety. The Police added that the suspect chased the girls and matcheted the victim severely on her head in the process.
The Police Prosecutor, Ayeni Gbenga, said the investigation on the case was yet to be completed and therefore urged the court not to grant the accused person bail.
In her ruling, Magistrate Gbadeyan Kamson ordered the remand of the suspect and adjourned the case to July 10, 2023.
