Pastor pleads guilty to raping twin sisters, sibling


A Kano-based pastor on Monday pleaded guilty to raping 13-year-old twin sisters and their 11-year-old sibling when he was arraigned before a Kano Magistrate Court.
Recall that Pastor Samuel Joe of Weather Head road in Sabon Gari of Fagge LGA was paraded last week along with 34 other suspected rapists by the Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Magaji Musa Majia, in Kano.

 “Joe criminally deceived his victims and lured them into his matrimonial bed and had an unlawful sexual intercourse with them and fingered the other one,” according to the charge sheet.
The offence contravenes Sections 283 and 263 of the penal code of law.
The matter had been reported to the police by one Sylvester Osehi through the Legal Aid Council of Nigeria.
When the charges were read to the accused, he pleaded guilty and begged for leniency, saying “It is the devil’s work.”
Presiding judge, Magistrate Maryam Ahmad Sabo, ordered the accused person be remanded in prison custody and adjourned the case to 26 September 2017.
Magistrate Maryam urged parents to always keep eyes on their children.
