He admitted being responsible for Ese five months pregnancy, but says she did not know how old the pregnancy was as he started sleeping with her months before they both left for Kano.

He said it was only the father that was not aware of their relationship but the mother know that they were both seeing each other.

Speaking, the counsel to Yunusa, Kayode Olashaebikan, said there was no case,” it is easy for the prosecution to bring up charges but Yunusa as a man has pleaded not guilty and it is left for the prosecution to prove their case beyond every reasonable doubt.

“It is case of two love birds, in our social parlance we call it elopement but government and the state prefer to call it abduction and it is left for the court to decide whether it is abduction or elopement of two minors because Yunusa is 18 years old and the girl in question is 14 years old.”

While the Prosecuting counsel, Kenneth Dika, said the state was ready to prove its case against the accused persons, with its six witnesses.
