Magistrate Lawal Suleiman, while delivering his judgment, Magistrate Lawal Suleiman said the offence committed by the convict warranted a severe punishment despite his age and being a first time offender.
"In view of the nature of the offence committed which is defiling a minor, the accused Aminu Abubakar is hereby sentenced to three full calendar years of imprisonment, having found this to be his first time appearing before the court with such offense.
Police prosecutor, Ashiru Ibrahim while responding to questions after the judgment, said, “We are pleased with the judgment, hoping it will serve as deterrent to others.” 

Mother of the victim, Hassana Muhammad also expressed satisfaction that justice had been done to the case, and called on mothers to bewatchful of their children's movement
"With such judgment within a short period of time, it has given us hope in the system."

Yet 14 years for being gay, not even for having gay sex, for just being gay! Whilst just "3 YEARS" for the defilement of a 5 year old girl child, by a paedophile?!

This is not his first time, how many other victims are there? Is the child going to receive compensation? Will the girl child be taken care of?

He is a paedophile! You can't even use the word in the verdict!

This is an outrage, there must be a retrial, this verdict must be rejected!

This is an affront to girls, an insult to women. It is an abuse of the credibility of the legal system! It is a disgrace to the legitimacy of our moral obligations to protect the vulnerable amongst us.

It will not be a deterrent, it is a joke.

I agree with anonymous 16:08. Being gay where it's two consensual adults you get 14years, yet for defiling a young vulnerable 5year old you get 3years. Our legal system has failed us! And our legislators are the biggest ridicule ever!
