The Prosecutor, Abdullahi Mayaki, had told the court that the convicts committed the offence in December, 2016.

He said that the convicts had lured the 12-year-old and 10-year-old minors with N50 and N100 and sexually abused them.

The offence contravened Section 19 of the Niger state Child Right Law, which on conviction attracts 14 years imprisonment.

Kolo commended the Magistrate for ensuring that justice was served and warned people to desist from such unholy act.
