Man jailed 6 months for abducting 3-year-old boy
A Minna Magistrates’ Court, on Wednesday sentenced one Kabiru Salisu to six months imprisonment for abducting a 3-year-old boy.
Magistrate Amina Musa said that abduction was a serious crime and one that would have brought agony to the child’s parents.
Musa, however, said the convict has shown remorse and sentenced him to six months imprisonment without an option of fine
The convict was arraigned on a 2-count charge of trespass and abduction of a 3-year- old boy.
The prosecutor, Insp. Alfred Auta, had told the court that one Baba Abubakar, reported the matter at Agaie Police Station on May 16.
Auta alleged that on the same day at about 2:30 a.m., the convict trespassed into Abubakar’s compound and abducted the child.
He said the accused was later apprehended by the police and the child rescued.
Salisu pleaded guilty to the charges and begged the court for leniency.
