A High Court sitting in Bauchi State sentenced a 50-year-old man, Yusuf Bako, to life imprisonment for raping a 4-year-old girl inside a mosque.

Bako, who was earlier arrested in 2020, was accused of committing the hideous crime during the COVID-19 lockdown.

It was learnt that he had previously been jailed twice for similar rape offenses.

This was disclosed by the Director of Public Prosecution, Barrister Sha’awanatu Yusuf, in a chat with journalists on Wednesday, December 27.

She said that the judgement was delivered by Justice Sa’ad Zadawa of High Court No. 6 in late November this year after hearings from both sides of the case.
