The Nigeria Police on Tuesday arraigned a hotel attendant, Danladi Sule, 31, in a Mararaba Upper Area Court, Nasarawa State, for allegedly deceiving his girlfriend that he would marry her.

The prosecutor, Insp. Joseph Ahua told the court that Rabiat Tijani, a girl friend to the accused, reported the matter at the ‘A’ Division Police Station, Mararaba on July 1. Ahua said that sometime in 2005, the accused approached the complainant for marriage, to which she consented. He alleged that the accused deceived the complainant to come and live with him as a wife.

“They have been living together since 2005, the accused impregnated her, of which she had two children for him,” the prosecutor alleged.
The accused later abandoned the complainant and the children in the village, came to Mararaba and married another woman. The prosecutor alleged that the accused is currently living with the woman at Kabayi Mararaba, Nasarawa State.

He said that the offence of deceitful marriage and cruelty to children committed by the accused contravened sections 238 and 383 of the Penal Code. Section 383 prescribes a three-year jail term as penalty for offenders.

Sule, however, denied committing the offence. His counsel, Mr Prince Nwagbokwu, prayed the court to grant him bail, stressing that he will not jump bail. Ahua objected to the bail application made by the accused counsel.

The Presiding Judge, Vincent Gwehemba rejected the objection of the prosecutor, adding that the accused has a pending case of divorce in the same court.
“Mr Nwagbokwu find out from the two parties what really happened, see if there will be a way to sort out things before the next adjourned date,” Gwehemba said.
He granted bail to the accused in the sum of N50, 000 with one surety in like sum and adjourned the case till July 14 for further hearing.
