A 30-year-old man who had his male organ cut off after he attempted to rape his 14-year-old victim appeared before Katsina senior magistrate court on a rape charge, contrary to section 283 of Penal Code law of the state.
Reports say the rape victim slashed the manhood of the suspect with a razor blade while attempting to free herself from the grips of her attacker who resides at Yargase village in Kankara local government area of the state.
According to the police prosecutor, Inspector Kabir Mohammed, Bashir Yau allegedly lured the victim ( Abasiya Tukur),14 years who is residing in the same house with him, into a nearby uncompleted building, and “forcefully had unlawful sexual intercourse with her.”
The police, through the First Information Report with a number; KT/741X/17, read in court for Bishir’s hearing, added: “On struggling to get herself from him, She (the victim) brought out a razor blade and cut his penis.”
Continuing, the police prosecutor, said; “It is a case of rape for mention,’’ before pleading that the case be adjourned to another date for mention, revealing that investigation was still in progress on the case.
Before the court adjourned the case to 19, July 2017, for mention, the magistrate Hajiya Fadile Dikko directed that Bishir be remanded in police custody till then.
“This court will not ask you whether the allegation read and explained to you is true or false as the offence of rape can only be tried by the High Court. After police investigation, your case file would be taken to Ministry of Justice for legal advice. If a prima facie case is established against you, then you will be tried at the high court,” Dikko said.
