Sani who was remanded on Tuesday, May 14, 2019, will be in prison custody till June 26, 2019, over a rape charge.

According to Punch, the case was reported to the police by the victim’s father, Hamisu Lawali at the Bindawa Police Station on Thursday, May 9, 2019.

Lawali also told the police that Ibrahim, who lives in the same quarters with them had at different times had unlawful carnal knowledge of his daughter.

However, the police while presenting the case in court told a Katsina Senior Magistrates’ Court that during interrogation, Ibarahim allegedly confessed that he had slept with the victim about three times.

The presiding magistrate, Hajiya Fadile Dikko, adjourned the case till June 26 and ordered that the accused be remanded in prison custody, Punch reports.
