Two siblings have been sentenced to 22 years imprisonment for raping four minors in Minna, the Niger State capital.
In sentencing Hassan Bilyaminu and Abdullahi Biliyaminu, who are also clerics at an Islamic school, Chief Magistrate Hauwa Baba Yusuf wondered “what people like the convicts derived from assaulting and defiling little girls”.
The four victims were pupils of the convicts at an Islamic school.
The oldest of the victims is 11, while the youngest is six, the court was told.
The suspect pleaded guilty, asking the Magistrate to tamper justice with mercy.
“Women and girls like every other member of the society should be respected and not be turned into prey by sex maniacs.
