A Chief Magistrate Court in Katsina on Tuesday has heard the case of a 57-year-old headmaster, Sule Yusuf, who sodomised a four-year-old pupil in his school.

It was reportedly said by the police that Yusuf committed the offence in his office at the Salihawa Primary School, in Tunge-Zuri village of Musawa Local Government area of Katsina.

Inspector Sani Ado said that the mother of the assaulted boy, Aisha Kabiru, made the report to the Village Head of Tungen Zuri, Alhaji Kabir Hussain, who in turn contacted the police.

Following his arrest, the accused was arraigned for “cognizance” on a one-count charge of “unnatural offence,” contrary to section 284 of the Penal Code law and the Senior Magistrate, Hajiya Falile Dikko, directed that the accused be remanded in prison custody till August 24.

Dikko in her ruling said, “this court will not ask you whether the allegation against you is true or false as an allegation of unnatural offence is triable by the High Court.

“Your case file will be duplicated and a copy sent to the Ministry of Justice for legal advice.

“If a prima facie case is established against you, you will be charged at the High Court but if a prima facie case is not established against you, you will be discharged pursuant to section 130(1)of the Criminal Procedure Code (CPC). You are before this court for cognisance purpose.”

Reports of sexual abuse of minors seem to be becoming prevalent in Katsina and getting more serious by the day up to the extent that Katsina state Governor Aminu Bello Masari recently initiated a collaboration with some non-governmental organizations to help check the trend.

On August 3, the police in the state announced the arrest of a 55 years old mechanic who had sexually assaulted female primary school pupils at Malumfashi in Malumfashi Local Government Area of the state.

DSP Gambo Isah said he often lured them with N500 into his workshop and would insert his finger into their private parts.

The governor is expected to present this menacing situation before the House of Assembly, requesting an executive bill which among other measures prescribes the death penalty for anyone that sexually abuse children.
