A rape victim in Katsina State has slashed the manhood of her attacker with a razor while attempting to free herself.
The alleged rapist, 30-year-old Bishir Yau of Yargase village in the Kankara Local Government Area of the state, was arraigned before a Katsina Senior Magistrate’s Court on a rape charge.
The police told the court on Monday during Bishir’s arraignment that sometime in May, he allegedly lured the 14-year-old victim, who was residing in the same house with him, into a nearby uncompleted building and “forcefully had unlawful sexual intercourse with her.”
The police, through the First Information Report with number, KT/741X/17, read in court, said, “While struggling to free herself from the suspect, the victim picked up a razor and cut his manhood.”
The magistrate, Hajiya Fadile Dikko, adjourned the case till July 19, 2017, directing that Bishir be remanded in police custody.
