41-Year-Old Man Defiles Lover’s Daughter

A 41- year-old man, Nnamdi Dike, has allegedly defiled the 12-year-old daughter of his lover.

The suspect, a security guard, was remanded by an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court, on Monday for sexual assault.

The prosecutor, ASP Raji Akeem told the court that the defendant committed the offence sometime in November 2022 at 37, Shogbade St., Power Line area, Ifako Ijaiye, Lagos.

The prosecutor said the 12- year-old victim had confided in her teacher how the defendant, being her mother’s lover, allegedly sexually molested her.

Akeem added that the defendant usually molested the victim whenever her mother was not at home and would threaten to kill her if she told anyone.

Akeem said the teacher, however, informed the victim’s mother, who reported the case at the police station.

The offence, the prosecutor said, contravened section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs Bola Osunsanmi, who refused to take the defendant‘s plea, ordered his remand in Kirikiri Correctional Center pending legal advice from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

The magistrate subsequently adjourned the case until June 26.

Also, two men, Wale Fatai, 32 and Oyemomilara Deji, 25, were on Monday arraigned in an Ota Magistrate’s Court in Ogun, for alleged breach of peace, conspiracy and threat to life.

The defendants, whose addresses were not provided, are facing a three-count charge but pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The Prosecutor, E.O Adaraloye, told the court that the defendants and others still at large committed the offences on March 23 at about 10:30pm at the Aparadiga area of Itele-Awori, Ota.

Adaraloye told the court that the defendants, with their accomplices, conspired to conduct themselves in a manner likely to cause a breach of peace by constituting a nuisance in the community.

He said that they also threatened the life of the Chairman, Olaoluwa Community Development Area (CDA), Mr Nurudeen.

The prosecutor said the offences contravened the Criminal Code, Laws of Ogun, 2006.

The Magistrate, Mrs A.O. Adeyemi, admitted each of the defendants to N100,000 bail with one surety in like sum.

Adeyemi ordered that the surety must reside within the court’s jurisdiction and be gainfully employed with evidence of tax payment to the Ogun State government.

She adjourned the case until June 26 for further hearing.
