Ibrahim of Angwan Gede in Gwagwalada, was arraigned on a count charge of attempt to commit indecent assault.
The Judge, Alhaji Alhassan Kusherki, who sentenced Ibrahim after he pleaded guilty to the offence, however, gave him an option to pay N30, 000 as fine.
Kusherki advised the convict to seek forgiveness from God.
The Prosecutor, Insp. Martha Paul, had earlier told the court that the matter was reported at the Gwagwalada Police Station on May 10 by one Asabe Moses, of Angwan Shanu.
Paul said the convict took the girl to the back of the nominal complainant’s house in an uncompleted building and wanted to have sexual intercourse with her.
She said that as soon as the convict saw Moses approaching his direction, he took to his heels and left the girl in the uncompleted building.
The prosecutor urged the court to try Ibrahim summarily under Section 157 (1) of the Criminal Procedure Code, since he had admitted committing the offence.
She said that the offence contravened the provisions of Section 285 of the Penal code.
The convicthowever pleaded guilty to the charge and begged for leniency. (NAN)
