Bauchi principal sentenced to 11 years in prison for defiling a 6-year-old girl


Principal Jalaludeen Zakari has been sentenced to 11 years in prison by the Bauchi State High Court for sexually assaulting a six-year-old girl who had come to the school for an entrance examination.

The convicts allegedly held the girl captive for several hours after official school hours before assaulting her.

Attorney Dayabu Ayuba, the Prosecution Adviser at the state Ministry of Justice, disclosed this in an interview with DAILY POST in Bauchi on Tuesday.

Ayuba said that three witnesses, including the victim, testified at the trial, leading to the sentencing.

“The sentence was handed down in July this year after Jalaluddin asked the court for leniency.

“The perpetrator asked the victim to stay and expelled all the other students without providing a reason for extending her stay. While she was left behind, the perpetrator sexually assaulted her and legally It was an act that amounted to rape.”
