A man identified as Mati Abdu, has been sentenced to death by stoning for raping a minor in Kano State.

The Upper Shariah Court sitting in the state sentenced Mati, 60, who hailed from Farsa village in Tsanyawa Local Government Area of the state, after he was arrested by the Police in 2019 for alleged rape of a 12-year-old-girl.

Justice Ibrahim Sarki Yola, after hearing from witnesses and the suspect, sentenced him to death by stoning because he was married.

Kano Courts Public Relations Officer, Baba Jibo, confirmed the sentencing to newsmen.
