An area court in Gwagwalada, in the FCT, on Tuesday ordered that two cattle herders who pleaded guilty to abducting and raping a woman be remanded in a correctional center pending sentencing on March 22.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Dabo Yakubu, told the court that the defendants, Nuru Tukur (21) and Yusufa Haruna (29), abducted a woman who was eight months pregnant from her house in Abaji Area Council of the FCT on February 25, took her to a bush, and both of them raped her.

He said one Abubakar Wakili of Yaba in Abaji Area Council reported the matter at the Gwagwalada Area Command office on Feb. 26.

Yakubu said that on Feb. 25, the convicts abducted the victim from Abaji Area Council from her house, adding that they took the victim to a bush where both of them raped her, not minding that she was eight months pregnant.

The prosecutor said the offenses contravened Sections 96, 262, 264, and 387 of the Penal Code.

The Judge, Malam Abdullahi Abdulkarim, deferred sentencing in order for him to see and know the condition of the victim.
