Call this brutal self-defence of bravery but this is a story to cheer. A rape victim in Katsina State has slashed the manhood of her attacker with a razor while attempting to free herself.
Punch Metro reports that the alleged rapist, 30-year-old Bishir Yau of Yargase village in the Kankara Local Government Area of the state, was arraigned before a Katsina Senior Magistrate’s Court on a rape charge.
The offence was said to be contrary to Section 283 of the Penal Code.
The police told the court on Monday during Bishir’s arraignment that sometime in May, he allegedly lured the 14-year-old victim, who was residing in the same house with him, into a nearby uncompleted building and “forcefully had unlawful sexual intercourse with her.”
The police, through the First Information Report with number, KT/741X/17, read in court, said, “While struggling to free herself from the suspect, the victim picked up a razor and cut his manhood.”
The police prosecutor, Inspector Kabir Mohammed, pleaded that the case be adjourned till another date, adding that investigation was still in progress.
The magistrate, Hajiya Fadile Dikko, adjourned the case till July 19, 2017, directing that Bishir be remanded in police custody.
She said, “This court will not ask you whether the allegation read and explained to you is true or false as the offence of rape will be tried at a high court.”
