Nigerian Man Accused Of Raping His Brother’s Wife

A Kastina man who allegedly raped his brother’s wife, has been arrested and arraigned in court after the incident was reported at the Divisional Police Headquarters, Musawa. The 35-year-old man, Abubakar Garba, of Dorayi village in the Musawa Local Government Area of Katsina State,  allegedly raped his brother’s wife, after his elder brother Usman took ill and was away in Katsina for medical examination and treatment.

The man who reportedly lured his brother’s wife into his room and had sexual intercourse with her “on different occasions”, was charged with rape under Section 183 of the Penal Code. Though the police prosecutor, Inspector Sani Ado, told a Katsina Senior Magistrates’ Court that investigation into the case was still in progress, the suspect was remanded in prison custody by Senior Magistrate Fadila Dikko, who fixed April 2, 2019, for the trial.
