A Kuje Magistrate Court in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has remanded a 24-year-old mason, Mukailu Ajibe, for impregnating a 15-year-old student.

Ajibe, who resides at Anguwan Gade in Kuje, is facing a two-count charge of abduction and adultery.
The presiding judge, Mr Azubike Okeagwu, remanded Ajibe after he pleaded guilty to the offence and adjourned hearing till Dec.12 for sentence.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Sgt. Niyiom Ishaya, told the court that the report was lodged at the Kuje Police Station on Oct. 16, by one Mr. Ismaila Jezhi, who resides at Local Education Authority (L.E.A) in Kuje.

Ishaya said that on the same date the complaint was filed, the complainant had reported that his daughter was missing for a week.

When the complainants’ daughter returned home she said she was with Ajibe at Anguwan Gade Area. She was discovered to be pregnant and said that Ajibe was responsible.

The prosecutor said that during police interrogation, Mukail admitted that he was responsible for the pregnancy.

Ishaya also said the offence contravenes the provision of sections 272 and 387 of the penal code.
