A Kano Magistrates’ Court has remanded one Ibrahim Mohammed, aged 56, accused of having sexual intercourse with his daughter since 2010 when she was just seven years.
Vanguard reports that Ibrahim, who lives at Hausawa Quarters Kano, is standing trial on a two-count charge of procuring minor and incest.

The prosecutor, Insp. Aluta Mijinyawa, told the court that the accused began to sexually assault the minor since the death of her mother in 2010 when she was just seven years old.

Mijinyawa told the court that the girl, who is now 14 years old, having now grown up “to know what is good and bad,” resisted the father, who threatened to harm her.
According to Vanguard, the prosecutor told the court that the girl reported the father at Metro Police Station in Kano.

The prosecutor said that the offences contravened sections 275 and 390 of the penal code. The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.
