Jacob Joel, a 42-year-old man remanded in a Jos Correctional Centre for allegedly defiling an 11-year-old girl, claimed that the devil tempted him to rape the minor.

According to the police, the victim, who is a friend of the defendant’s daughter, was reportedly defiled by the defendant when she went to see her friend.

The defendant, on the other hand, pleaded not guilty to the offense.

The judge, Justice S.P Gang, in his ruling, ordered that the defendant be remanded in prison until Dec. 7, for a hearing.

Earlier, the prosecutor, L.P Fombot, told the court that the minor had visited the accused home to see her friend but did not meet her at home.

Fombot said the victim, however, met the accused at home alone who allegedly dragged her into his room, threatened her with a knife, and had carnal knowledge of her.

She alleged that the accused threatened her on several occasions, raping her repeatedly.

The prosecutor said luck, however, ran out on him when he took the minor to the bush to have carnal knowledge of her but was spotted by her school teacher.

If convicted, the accused could face life imprisonment.
