A High Court in Bauchi State on Tuesday sentenced two men to 35 years in prison each for cutting off the genitals of a six-year-old girl, Hauwa’u Ya’u.

The Bauchi Chief Judge, Justice Rabi Talatu Umar handed down the sentence to Adamu Abdulra’uf, 20, and Abdulkadir Wada, 21 after they pleaded guilty as charged.

The convicts were arraigned in 2021 on three counts bordering on criminal conspiracy, causing grievous hurt and attempting to commit culpable homicide on the girl.

The incident happened in the Jama’are Local Government Area of the state.

The convicts reportedly lured the unsuspecting kid into an uncompleted building on Gandu Street, Jama’are sometime in December 2020 and removed her genitals for ritual purposes, according to the prosecution counsel, Sabi’u Gumba.


The state government sponsored the girl’s surgical operation, it was learnt.
