An Upper Area Court in Gwagwalada, FCT, yesterday has ordered an arrest of Gideon Sunday, a security man who allegedly raped a nine-year-old girl.
Mr Sunday was charged with raping a minor as he was arrested by the police.
However, The Judge, Sani Umar has granted the prosecuting counsel’s Akaso Sunday, application, but not to grant bail to the defendant.
The Judge ordered that the defendant be remanded under police custody for at least one week.
According to Mr Sunday, the court must not grant him bail, because the defendant would jump bail and would also halt the ongoing investigation process.
The offence, he said, contravened the provision of sections 275 of the Penal Code.
The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty.
