Justice Peter Kekemeke of an FCT High Court sitting in Nyanya on Thursday remanded a barber, Mohammed Sani, for allegedly defiling a six-year-old boy.
The police arraigned the 20-year-old defendant, who resides at Rufan Fulani in Maple, Abuja on a charge bordering on rape.
Kekemeke ordered the remand of the defendant after he informed the court that he had no lawyer.
The judge, consequently, ruled that “the defendant is hereby remanded in prison custody until the next adjourned date”.
He adjourned the matter until Dec. 8 for hearing.
Earlier, the Prosecuting Counsel, Kufreabasi Ebong, informed the court that the defendant committed the offense on April 1, 2020.
He said that the defendant at about 5 p.m. on April 1, 2020 at Rufan Fulani, sexually abused a six-year-old boy.
