Man sentenced to life imprisonment for sodomising 10-year-old boy in Jigawa

A State High Court sitting in Jigawa has sentenced a 25-year-old Aminu Ali to life imprisonment for raping and sodomising a 10-year-old boy. 


Ali was convicted and sentenced by Justice Musa Ubale, on Thursday, March 28, 2024. 


Ali, who hails from Aukayawa Quarters in the Gwaram Local Government Area of the state, was found guilty by the court after the prosecution had established “beyond reasonable doubt” that he lured the victim and engaged in anal sex with him.


To prove its case, the prosecution counsel presented five witnesses and submitted four exhibits, including a medical report.


In his ruling, Justice Ubale said the prosecution had established its case beyond reasonable doubt.


Consequently, the judge sentenced the convict to life imprisonment under Section 3 (2&4) of the Violence Against Person Prohibition Law of Jigawa State (VAPP LAW).


Justice Ubale, however, stated that the convict has the legal right to appeal the judgment within three months.
