The prosecutor, ASP Badamasi Gawuna told the court that one Abubakar Yusuf of Kwanan Dangora, on June 8, reported the defendant to the police after he allegedly had canal knowledge of an 85-year-old woman.

He alleged that sometimes in the month of November 2019, the defendant trespassed into the complainant mother’s home situated at Unguwar Rimi area of Kwanar Dangora, and raped her.

The prosecutor added that the offence contravened sections 344 and 283 of the Penal Code. Gawuna also told the court that the defendant attempted to rape three housewives.
