According to Pulse, the complainant alleged that Bum had been sexually molesting his 16-year-old daughter and her older sister for a long time.

Uleru said that the offence is punishable under the provisions of sections 284 and 286 of the Penal Code Laws of the Benue.

Magistrate Vincent Kor did not take Bum’s plea due to lack of jurisdiction.

He adjourned the matter until Dec. 6 for further mention.
