12-year-old boy, identified only as Aminu, lost his life after he was allegedly sexually abused by one Abubakar, a tea seller in Ngwayanma, in the Kontagora area of Niger State.
Abubakar, aka Maishai, reportedly kidnap Aminu from his parents’ house sometime in March, and held him hostage in his (Abubakar’s) apartment.
It was gathered that a neighbour, who got wind of Aminu’s abduction, reported the case to the police at the Kontagora division. While Abubakar was arrested, the boy was admitted to a hospital, where he died.
A police source said that Abubakar was arraigned in a Kontagora Chief Magistrate’s Court before the boy died, on two counts of abduction and unnatural offences, to which the defendant pleaded guilty. .
The unfortunate thing is that he was sentenced to one month’s imprisonment with a fine of N30,000, which is ridiculous !!!
