A rape victim has reportedly slashed the manhood her attacker, Bishir Yau, 30, with a razor while attempting to free herself.
It was gathered that the alleged rapist of Yargase village in the Kankara Local Government Area of Katsina state, was arraigned before a Katsina Senior Magistrate’s Court on a rape charge.
During Bishir’s arraignment, the police told the court that the suspect allegedly lured the 14-year-old victim, who was residing in the same house with him, into a nearby uncompleted building and “forcefully had unlawful sexual intercourse with her.”
The police report reads, “While struggling to free herself from the suspect, the victim picked up a razor and cut his manhood.”
The magistrate, Hajiya Fadile Dikko, however, adjourned the case till July 19, 2017, as the police prosecutor, Inspector Kabir Mohammed, pleaded that the case be adjourned till another date, stating that investigation was still in progress.
She further directed that Bishir be remanded in police custody.
“This court will not ask you whether the allegation read and explained to you is true or false as the offence of rape will be tried at a high court. After police investigation, your case file will be taken to the Ministry of Justice for legal advice. If a prima facie case is established against you, then you will be tried at the high court,” the magistrate said.
