A 35-year-old headmaster at Alhazawa Primary School, Danja, in the Danja Local Government Area of Katsina State, Kabiru Husaini, has been remanded in a correctional centre for the alleged rape of a minor in his school.
Husaini, who resided at Sabon Gari Quarters, Zaria, Kaduna State, allegedly defiled the victim several times, although the victim’s father found out on January 26, 2020.
Husaini will be in the correctional facility till April 14, 2020, when his case comes up for mention before Hajiya Fadile Dikko of a Katsina senior magistrate’s court.
The police alleged that Husaini sexually violated the 10-year-old girl ‘about five times’ inside one of the classrooms in the school.
The victim’s father, Ibrahim Sani, reported the incident on January 27, 2020, at the Danja Police Station, leading to Husaini’s arrest.
According to the police, Sani observed that the victim was walking abnormally on January 26, which prompted him to query her.
The victim reportedly revealed that Husaini “who is the headmaster at Alhazawa Primary School, deceived and lured her into the said school classroom and about five times had unlawful carnal knowledge of her.”
Husaini is facing a charge for the offence of rape in line with Section 254 of the Katsina State Penal Code Law of 2019.
The presiding magistrate directed that he should be remanded.
