63-year-old man to be stoned to death for raping 10-year-old girl

An Islamic court in Kano state has sentenced a 63-year-old man Ubale Sa'idu Dotsa to death by stoning for raping a 10-year-old girl and infecting her with HIV.

Sa'idu whose two wives have reportedly died from AIDS related diseases admitted raping the girl but said he was incited by the Devil.

Kano state's commissioner of justice Maliki Kuliya told the BBC Hausa service that Mr Dotsa has the right to appeal up to the federal Supreme Court, which could take years.
