 THE Principal of Community Secondary School, Kadandani in Rimi Local Government Area of Katsina State, Ibrahim Sale, was yesterday, paraded before newsmen by police for allegedly raping and impregnating his 12-year-old student.

  Parading the suspect at the command’s headquarters in Katsina, Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Gambo Isah, said Sale lured the 12-year-old to his apartment and repeatedly had unlawful carnal knowledge of her after raping her on  the first day.

  Isah expressed worries about the recent upsurge in rape cases and called on the public, especially parents, to always look after their wards.

  “From the 9th to 14th January, 2021, the command has arrested eight suspected rapists in six reported cases across the state. Among the suspects is Ibrahim Sale who is the principal of a community school in Rimi Local Government Area. He lured a young girl of about 12-year-old and serially had unlawful carnal knowledge of her without the knowledge of the parents to the state that he even impregnated her. In fact, right now that I am speaking to you, this young girl had delivered a baby after Caesarean Section (CS) at the General Hospital Katsina in which investigation is ongoing and that is why we are calling on parents to be vigilant,” Isah stated.

  He, however, said the command was collaborating with government, traditional institutions, religious leaders, trade unions, civil society organisations to rid the state of rape.

But the suspect confessed to the crime, blaming the devil for the act.

  “My name is Ibrahim Sale. I am the principal of Community Secondary School Kadandani in Rimi Local Government and I have three wives. I raped my 12-year-old student and she got pregnant. I do pay her N200, N300 and sometimes N500 before she agreed to have sexual intercourse with me. She gave birth to baby boy on Sunday,” he said. 

Similarly, an Akwa Ibom State High Court sitting in Uyo yesterday sentenced a 23-year-old man, Iniobong Moses, to life imprisonment for raping his 3-year-old step-daughter at Ikot Akpe in Uyo Local Government Area.

  Justice Okon Okon sentenced Moses after convicting him of rape, contrary to Section 367 of the Criminal Code Cap 38, Vol. 2 Laws of Akwa Ibom State of Nigeria, 2000.

  He described the convict as “a disgrace to humanity, whose conduct falls abysmally below even the conduct of beasts.”
