A 40 year old Islamic scholar and medicine seller identified as Malam Musa has been accused of molesting and impregnating a 14-year-old girl.
The girl, who is a JSS1 student of Higher Islamic School, Nguru, Nayi-nawa area of Nguru town, Yobe State, is now reportedly four months pregnant.
She revealed that the 40-year-old Islamic scholar, who is also her neighbour, first raped and then proceeded to give her N2,500 after repeating the act four times despite her resistance.
The victim said she approached another 60-year-old Muslim scholar, who lives in the Bulabulin area of Nguru town for ‘spiritual’ abortion, when she discovered that she was pregnant,
However, the scholar requested for a huge amount of money to abort the pregnancy, but the man asked her to pay him in kind and went on to rape her shortly afterwards.
But the pregnancy became noticeable despite promises by the Islamic scholar that it will ‘spiritually’ be aborted.
Despite overwhelming evidence, the family of the victim said the alleged rapist, Malam Musa, has taken them to court for alleged defamation of character.
They said; “We are worried she will not get justice for the repeated sexual abuse she suffered in the hand of the Islamic medicine seller and the Islamic scholar,”
The 60-year-old Muslim scholar has however, admitted molesting the girl when she approached him for ‘spiritual’ abortion.
