Man 62, Sentenced to 5 years in Prison For Raping His 9-yr-old Cousin


A Jos Upper Area Court III, Kasuwan Nama, on Thursday, sentenced Dickson Gambo, a 62-year-old man, to five years imprisonment for raping his nine-year-old cousin.

The sitting judge, Mr Yahaya Mohammed, sentenced Dickson Gambo after he was found guilty of the charge of rape and he begged the court for leniency in its judgement.

Mr. Mohammed, who did not give the convict the option of fine, said that the punishment would serve as a warning to others who might want to engage in such acts.

The police prosecutor, Sgt. Ajuma Boniface, had told the court that the case was reported at the State’s Criminal Intelligence and Investigative Department on November 2, by Mr Kim Chollom, who resides at Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) staff quarters in Jos, Plateau state.

He told the court that the offender who lives at No. T17 Busa Buji, ensnared his nine-year-old cousin, into his room and had carnal knowledge of her.

Boniface reported that during police interrogations, the convict admitted to raping his cousin.

The prosecutor further added that the offence was contrary to sections 283 of the penal code and punishable under section 283 of the Penal Code Law of Northern Nigeria.
