63-YEAR OLD MAN TO BE STONED TO DEATH IN KANO FOR RAPING 10 YEAR OLD GIRL









A 63-year-old man in Kano has been sentenced to death by stoning for raping a 10 year-old girl and infecting her with AIDS.
An Islamic court gave the ruling after Ubale Sa'idu Dotsa admitted he raped her, claiming he was incited by the Devil, AP news reports.
Ubale's two wives had reportedly died from Aids-related diseases.
BBC reports that several people have been sentenced to death by stoning by Islamic courts in Northern Nigeria, but none have been carried out.


Kano state's commissioner of Justice, Maliki Kuliya, however told the BBC Hausa service that Mr. Dotsa had the right to appeal to the Federal Supreme Court, and this could take years.
