A 30-year-old man identified as Abdullahi Idris has been remanded in a Correctional Centre by a Chief Magistrates’ Court in Kano on Monday for allegedly defiling a 13-year-old boy.
Idris, who lives in Sheka Baranda Quarters Kano, is charged with abduction and an unnatural offence.
Chief Magistrate, Mustapha Sa’ad-Datti, directed the police to return the case file to the Office of the Kano State Director of Public Prosecutions for legal advice.
Sa’ad-Datti adjourned the matter until Aug. 2, for further mention.
Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, Ms Asma’u Ado, told the court that Idris committed the offence on Feb. 11, 2022, at Sheka Baranda Quarters Kano.

The offence, she said, contravenes the provisions of sections 272 and 284 of the Penal Code.
