A man was arrested, charged and convicted of rape after raping a young girl, prosecutors in Nigeria said.
A court in Kano, has sentenced the man to be stoned to death for raping the 13-year-old girl and infecting her with HIV.
Lawyers believe that the man’s sentence will be commuted to life imprisonment. The convict, Ubale Sa’idu Dotsa, testified on Wednesday, that the devil caused him to have sex with the girl.
The 63-year-old man claimed that he did not know he was infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. Dotsa argued that the teenager turned him on by visiting his shop late at night.
Judge Faruk Ahmed ignored his plea for leniency. The judge ordered him to pay the victim $240,000. Dotsa is a married man and a father of children.
