A Kano Magistrates’ Court sitting at Audu Bako Secretariat, on Tuesday remanded two men, Abdullahi Mohammed, 50, and Musa Garba, 20, in prison for alleged sodomy.
The judge, Muhammad Jibril, ordered the remand of the defendants and adjourned the case till April 11 for mention.
Mohammed who lives at PRP Quarters, Kano and Garba, who lives at Rimin Kebe Quarters, Kano, are facing a count charge of unnatural offence.
Earlier, the prosecutor, ASP Rufa’i Inusa, had told the court that one Sani Muhammad, attached to Nasarawa Local Government Area Vigilance Group, reported the case on March 5 to the Kwana Hudu Police Division, Kano.
Inusa said that on the same date at about 9.00 p.m., while Muhammad was on patrol, he apprehended the defendants inside Mohammed’s room situated at PRP Quarters, Kano.
“Mohammed and Garba were caught having unlawful sexual intercourse through the anus on different occasions,” he said.
The defendants, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge levelled against them.
According to the prosecutor, the offence contravened Section 284 of the penal code.
