The Chief Magistrate, Hajiya Halima Nasir, ordered the remand of the defendants pending legal advice from the Directorate of Public prosecution (DPP) and adjourned the case till March 20 for further mention.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Insp. Iliyasu Muhammad, had told the court that one Ya’u Yahaya of Unguwar Dabai Quarters, Kano, reported the case at the Rijiyar Zaki Police Division, Kano, on Feb. 6.

“The two accused persons intimidated the victim with cutlass and forcefully had unlawful sexual intercourse with her, which caused her grievous harm,’’ Muhammad said.

He said that the offences contravened Sections 97 and 283 of the Penal Code.
