Two blind homosexuals were on Thursday jailed for abusing two boys in Minna, the Niger state capital.
They were sentenced to six years imprisonment without an option of fine.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the Magistrate, Hajiya Hauwa, handed down the verdict after the duo of Idris Usman and Abubakar Sadik pleaded guilty to the charge preferred against them.
Each of the convicts was sentenced to three years in prison.
The police prosecutor, Abdullahi Mayaki, had told the court that the accused committed the offence in December 2016.
He told the court that the two boys were lured with N50 and N100 and got them abused.
The two boys are within the ages of 10 and 12 years of age.
He said the offence contravened section 19 of the Niger state child right law.
The Director General of the State Child Rights Agency, Hajiya Mairam Kolo, who was in court, applauded the judgment.
She commended the magistrate for ensuring that justice was done which, she said, would serve as a deterrent to others.
