- Baba said the defendant, lured the boy into his room and sodomised him.
A 75-year-old man, Umar Isah, who allegedly sodomised a 10-year-old boy has been remanded in a correctional centre by a Kaduna Chief Magistrates’ Court on Thursday.
The police charged Isah who resides in Kingshasha Road Ungwan Rimi Kaduna with an unnatural offence.
The Magistrate, Hajara Dauda, who did not take the plea of Isah, held that the court lacked jurisdiction to entertain the suit.
Dauda directed the police to forward the case file to the state Director of Public Prosecutions for legal advice.
She adjourned the case until July 13, for further mention.
Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, Insp Sunday Baba, told the court that Isah committed the offence on July 4 at 1p.m., at his residence.
Baba said the defendant, lured the boy into his room and sodomised him.
The prosecutor added that during investigation, Isah confessed to committing the crime.
The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of Section 259 of the Kaduna State Penal Code Law, 2017.
