"He then slept close to Shamsudeni, who was fast asleep and started romancing his male organ. When Shamsudeni woke up, Abubakar took to his heel until he was pursued and arrested," he said.
The prosecutor said that the offence contravened Sections 95 and 342 of the Penal Code. The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge, saying: "I followed a friend into the house to sleep and when we were sleeping, I drew up the blanket to cover myself very well. When the complainant woke up, he asked who came to sleep in his room and he was told that I was the one. That was what happened," Mr. Abubakar said. The Judge, Umar Kagarko, granted bail to the accused in the sum of N50, 000 and a surety in like sum.
