An 18-year-old student, Muhammed Muazu was sentenced to three years imprisonment by a Jos Upper Area Court on Thursday for raping a 15-year-old girl.
Judge Yahaya Mohammed convicted Muazu as he admitted committing the offence and begged for leniency.
‘’This act will not be condoned, it is very grievous, the law frowns at it and you will spend three years in prison without an option of fine. ‘’
Mohammed said the judgement would serve as a deterrent to others.
Earlier, the prosecution told the court that one Suleiman Ibrahim reported the case at Angwan Rogo Police Station on Sept.30.
The prosecution alleged that the convict raped the minor, while the offence contravened Section 183 of the Penal Code.
