A High Court in the Federal Capital Territory, sitting in Kubwa, Abuja, and presided over by Hon. Justice A. Akanbi-Yusuf, has convicted and sentenced one Dr. Abubakar Mustapha Danraka, to life imprisonment for raping a minor.

The convict, Abubakar Mustapha Danraka, was a former Chief Pharmacist of the National Hospital in Abuja and Senior Special Adviser (Technical) to the Director of the National Institute for Pharmaceutical Research and Development.

He was arrested on March 27, 2020, for defiling a boy (name withheld) who lived in the same estate with him in Abuja.

He lured the victim to his apartment and had anal intercourse with him after stupefying him with a drink.
The prosecution team from NAPTIP sufficiently proved the charge beyond a reasonable doubt, which led to the September 18, 2023, judgment.

Reacting to the judgment, the Director General of NAPTIP, Professor Fatima Waziri-Azi, hailed the judiciary for its doggedness in ensuring that justice is served under the VAPP Act.

She said, “I want to specially commend the Judiciary for its sustained collaboration and support in the implementation of the VAPP/Law in the country, which has culminated in this landmark judgment. This is a victory for us as a country.
“In our bid to make Nigeria a violence-free nation, in collaboration with all our esteemed partners and stakeholders, we will continue to scale our efforts to ensure more convictions and less impunity,” the NAPTIP Director General stated.
