A Head teacher, Jalaludeen Zakari, from Burra village in the Ningi Local Government Area of Bauchi State, has been sentenced to 11 years in prison for sexually assaulting one of his students.

The verdict was delivered by Justice Nana Fatimah Jibrin, the Presiding Judge of Bauchi State High Court No. 11.

Barrister Dayabu Ayuba, the Prosecuting Counsel l, a State Counsel with the Ministry of Justice, disclosed this in an interview with journalists in Bauchi on Saturday.

According to him, during the trial, he presented three witnesses, including the victim who testified before the court.

He said the six-year-old girl was in the school to undergo a screening for admission before she ended up being defiled by the convict who held her for hours after official school closing hours.

The counsel said, “Although he did not use his manhood on the girl, he fingered her and, in legal parlance, this is tantamount to rape.”

Recall that a similar incident occurred in 2023 where a High Court Judge in Bauchi sentenced one Yusuf Bako to life imprisonment for raping a girl inside a mosque.

Additionally, two other men were handed 35 years imprisonment each for culpable homicide and removing the private part of a teenage girl in Jama’are.
