“Anyone found guilty of raping 8-month Khadija will pay the supreme price of life imprisonment" – Emir Sanusi

Emir Sanusi vows life imprisonment for those who raped 8-months old Khadija
Emir of Kano, Muhammadu Sanusi II has vowed that those found guilty of raping 8-month old Khadijah Bashir will pay the supreme price of a life imprisoment or a minimum of 14 years imprisoment and paying a fine of N200K to the victim. He also called on the parents of Khadija to see incidene as an act of God. Below is what he wrote on his IG page...


8-month-old baby was raped by husband of her mother’s friend while she was six months old in Kano.
I urged the parents of the victim to consider the incidence as an act of God and continue to take good care of the little girl.
They should view what happened to their little daughter as a destiny and accept it in good faith. They should continue to take good care of her, I am sure God the Almighty will come to their aid.
Kano state government would shoulder all the medical bills of the little girl.
Kano State Government had already offset all her medical bills at Murtala Muhammad Specialist Hospital where she was first admitted and would also do same at Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital.
However, Government will make whoever is found guilty the first to pay the supreme price of life imprisonment. Whoever is involved in this sordid sexual crime will be prosecuted under the relevant provision contained in the Kano State Penal Code Amendment Law referred to as the
‘Principal Law’ as amended under Section 283.
The law says; ‘whoever commits rape, shall be punished with imprisonment for life or for any lesser term not below fourteen years and shall be liable to a fine of N200,000 and in addition there to be required by Court to pay compensation to the victims.
