A 27-year-old man, Lawal Abubakar, on Tuesday told a Kubwa Grade 1 Area Court in Abuja, that a 12-year-old girl he abducted was his girlfriend.
Mr. Abubakar of Byazhin, Kubwa, Abuja, pleaded guilty to charges of abduction and gross indecency of a minor leveled against him, but said the girl was his girlfriend.
He told the court that the girl came to his house to inform him that her parents had travelled.
He said he took her back to her parent’s house, discovered that they were not around, and decided to keep her in his house for two days.
Abubakar further admitted having sexual intercourse with the minor while she was in his place.
The Judge, Mohammed Marafa, convicted him and ordered that he be remanded in police custody.
Mr. Marafa adjourned the case until Dec. 21, for sentencing.
