Security guard in Abuja court for inserting finger into 10-yr-old girls vagina
A 28-year-old Security guard, Shehu Yusuf, on Wednesday appeared in a Gudu Upper Area Court for alleged gross indecency toward a 10-year-old girl.
Yusuf, a resident of Wuye, Abuja, was allegedly caught dipping his finger into the girls vagina without her consent.
Prosecutor Urom Out told the court that one Aisha Mohammed of Wuye, Abuja, reported the matter at the Wuye Police Station on Dec. 27.
Urom further said that the offence contravened Section 285 of the Penal Code.
The accused, however, pleaded not guilty, saying that he was unjustly beaten up by six men in his house over the matter.
Yusuf also said that when he was invited to the police station his property was stolen by unknown men.
His Counsel, Missa Akintola, applied for his bail, stressing that the accused was still innocent until proven guilty.
The judge, Alhaji Umar Kagarko, granted bail to the accused in the sum of N100, 000 with one reliable surety who must reside within the courts jurisdiction.
Kagarko also ordered the police to verify the residence of the surety and investigate the claimed stolen property.
He added that the police should submit the reports of their investigations to the court on Jan. 12.
He adjourned the case till Feb. 24, for hearing.
