An Upper Area Court sitting in Kasuwan Nama, Jos North, on Tuesday sentenced a 25-year-old farmer, Wundetenan Juna, to three years in prison for raping an eight-year-old girl.

Upper Area Court judge Yahaya Mohammed did not give the convict any option of fine

Mr Juna had pleaded guilty to the one-count charge of rape, and begged the court for leniency.

Mr Mohammed said that the punishment would serve as a deterrent to others who might want to engage in similar acts.

Earlier, the prosecutor, O.S Ocho, had told the court that the case was reported on February 2, at the Mangu Divisional police headquarters and transferred to the State’s Criminal Investigative Department for further investigation.

According to him, the convict, a resident of Sabon Barki Gindiri, in Mangu, on the said date, lured the little girl with the N20, a resident of the same area, into an uncompleted building and raped her.

Mr Ocho said that during medical investigation, some bruises were found on the private part of the victim.
