Nigerian rapist sentenced to death for raping a Minor

The Kaduna State High Court on Wednesday sentenced a man identified as Usman Shehu Bashir to death by hanging for raping a two-year-old girl to death.

The suspect alleged that he committed the offence in 2015 when he took the victim, Fatima, to his room and raped her for about 40 minutes until she died.

Delivering the judgment, the judge, Justice Kabir Dabo, sentenced the defendant to death by hanging claiming that the offence contravenes the law passed under section 221 of the penal code, Kaduna State law 1999 as amended.

The judge said, “The convict has confessionally confirmed the occurrence of the offense, as well, his written statements also confirmed. By these two confessional statements, the court passed the judgment.

“On that fateful day, the convict took late Fatima to his room, and for about 40 minutes, he raped her which led to her death, after the establishment of all the evidence of committing the crime,” Vanguard quoted him as saying.

He further stated that the convict has the right to appeal the judgment within the next 90 days.

Reacting to the judgment, the victim”s father, Malam Zakariya Ya’u Dahiru, expressed happiness as justice has been served in his favor.
