A man was arrested, charged and convicted of rape after sleeping with his younger sister and getting her pregnant, according to court proceedings in Nigeria.
Now, the Bauchi State Sharia Superior Court has sentenced the 30-year-old Umar Mohammed Kandahar to death by stoning for impregnating his younger sister.
The defendant, who is married to three women, was accused of having intercourse with his sister on an ongoing basis.
Police said that the girl was just 16-years-old when she became pregnant from her brother.
The defendant pleaded guilty to the charge of incest, but denied the charge of rape. Kandahar argued that the sexual relationship was consensual.
The judge sentenced Kandahar to death by stoning.
Kandahar is appealing his conviction and sentence.
