APC lawmaker denies renouncing Nigerian citizenship at Tribunal
NAN reports that Abdullahi, a resident of Sabon Gari, Kontagora, was charged with an unnatural offence, contrary to section 284 of the penal code law.

The Police Prosecutor, ASP. Daniel Ikwoche, had told the court that one Murtala Abdullahi, a Hisbah Commander in Kontagora Local Government Area reported the matter at the ‘A’ Police Division in Kontagora on July 22.

According to him, the complainant alleged that the accused lured 35 of his pupils who are between the ages of 9 and 14 years into his room and had anal intercourse with them on different occasions between March and July.

When the charge was read to him, he pleaded guilty and begged the court for leniency.

The prosecutor, thereafter, prayed the court to try him summarily in line with section 157 of the Criminal Procedure Code.

In her ruling, Magistrate Hauwa Yusuf, sentenced Abdullahi to seven years in prison with hard labour.

Yusuf, however, said the convict will have the option of a N2 million fine after serving the first four years of his sentence.
