Student Who Allegedly Impregnated Girl Friend And Abandoned Her Goes On Remand

Run away from pregnant girl friend

A Mararaba Upper Area Court in Nasarawa state has ordered the remand of a 28-year-old student, Gimba Emen for allegedly impregnating and abandoning his girlfriend.

The prosecutor, Sergeant Samuel Okoro, told the court that Jessica Ibrahim, a girlfriend to the accused, reported the matter at the Sani Abacha Road Police Station, Mararaba, on August. 4 at about 11:30 a.m.
Okoro said that on January 4,this year, the accused who resides at Mararaba, approached Jessica for a relationship to which she accepted. He alleged that the accused deceived and deceitfully induced the complainant, who is not lawfully married to him, to believe that he will marry her.
“The accused cohabited with Jessica and had sexual intercourse with her which resulted into pregnancy. Thereafter, he drove her out of the house without providing for her needs,’’ Okoro alleged.

According to him, the complainant is carrying a seven-month-old pregnancy.
Okoro said that the offence committed by the accused contravened Section 383 of the Penal Code. Section 383 prescribes a three-year jail term as penalty for offenders even as Emen denied committing the offence.
He told the court that he had relationship with Jessica, but that it was in the past.
The prosecutor objected to the bail of the accused, adding that he is trying to deny his responsibility.
