A 14-year-old girl has dragged her employer’s husband, Malam Yahai, to a magistrates’ court sitting in Garki LGA of Jigawa State for allegedly raping and impregnating her.
The 14-year-old whose identity was withheld, worked as a house-help for Yahai’s wife and was reportedly raped countless times by the suspect until she became pregnant.
She prayed the court to compel the suspect to take responsibility of naming the new born baby she delivered, including slaughtering a ram and providing clothes for her son, according to Vanguard.
Narrating her ordeal before the court presided over by Magistrate Aliyu Roni, the girl said Yahai always took advantage of her each time his wife was away.
She said: “My Lord, I cannot tell how many times he forced himself on me.”
The suspect was also accused of allegedly giving N30,0000 as bribe to the representative of the village of Siyori, Malam Salisu Makaho to influence police officers handling the case.
After the charges were read to him, Yahai, pleaded not guilty and the judge ordered a further investigation into the matter.
Roni stated that a new date would be fixed for the continuation of the trial as soon as the police concludes the investigations.
