A randy Nigerian man has been condemned to die by stoning, for impregnating his younger sister. Umar Mohammed Kandahar, 30-year-old, is however appealing the sentence handed down by the Upper Sharia Court in Bauchi, his lawyer has said.

Umar was arraigned before Upper Sharia Court Unguwar Jaki, by the Bauchi State Shari’ah Commission. Counsel to the Shariah Commission, Barrister Dayyabu Ayuba, told the court that though married with three wives, Umar forcefully had sex with his younger sister, from the same father.

Barrister Ayuba disclosed Umar committed the abominable act when the younger sister was brought to his house by their father to help take her to school. He said the offence is contrary to section 136(1) of the Bauchi State Penal Code Law 2001, disclosing that the girl, who was 16 at the time, became pregnant and has delivered a baby.

Umar pleaded guilty but claimed that the act was consensual. The Shariah Court Judge, Musa Barde, sentenced him to death by stoning.

Umar’s lawyer, Barrister Sadiq Abubakar, promptly filed a motion before Bauchi State High Court 7, asking for the bail of his client, pending the determination of his appeal by the Sharia Court of Appeal. His argument is that his client’s family has suffered as a result of his detention since 2011.

The Presiding Judge, Justice Aliyu Baba Usman, has fixed next week Monday, November 25, for mention.
