A Kaduna Chief Magistrates’ Court on Thursday ordered that a 28-year-old man, Illiyasu Garba, be remanded in a correctional centre for allegedly sodomising a 10-year-old boy.
The Magistrate, Mr Ibrahim Emmanuel. did not take the plea of Garba for want in jurisdiction.
Emmanuel ordered that the case file should be sent to the Kaduna State Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for advice.
He adjourned the case until March 20 for DPP’s advice.
Earlier, the prosecutor, Insp Chidi Leo, told the court that Garba committed the offence on Jan. 22 at his residence.
