26-year-old Charged With Rape
The Police on Friday arraigned a 26-year-old man, Sunny Adoyi, before a Makurdi Chief Magistrates’ Court over alleged rape of an eight-year-old girl.
Prosecuting police officer, Joseph Entonu told the court that on July 26, one Joy Pever of No. 28 Peva Agenda Road, reported the matter to the ‘E’ Division police station, Makurdi, Benue State.
He said that the accused forcibly had carnal knowledge of the girl, thereby causing her to bleed.
However, when the case came up for mention, no plea was taken for want of jurisdiction.
The accused was, however, refused bail as the Chief Magistrate, Mrs Terseer Tsumba, said the charge was not bailable.
She ordered the accused to be remanded at the Federal Prisons pending a medical report.
Tsumba adjourned the case to September 9, 2012.
