#Lobatan: Lawyer caught fondling nine-year-old girl in court



There was a mild drama at the premises of the Tinubu Magistrate Court in Lagos on Wednesday as a lawyer was caught fondling the breasts and private part of a 9-year-old.
The 9-year-old was said to have accompanied her grandmother who had a civil case in court and needed a lawyer.

While the grandmother was trying to get a lawyer who would assist her with her case, the lawyer allegedly tricked the little girl to an alley within the court premises where he carried the girl on his laps and started fondling her private part and breast after giving her his phone.
The grandmother was attracted to the little girl after she was seen crying and when asked, she pointed to the lawyer, saying he fondled her breast and also touched her private part.
An eyewitness while reacting to the mild drama said the lawyer was seen walking around the court premises in company of the 9-year-old telling those who sought to know that the girl was her daughter.
The noise created as a result of the incident led to a disruption of court proceedings while the matter was brought to the attention of the Chief Magistrate, K. B. Ayeye.
Following an interrogation by the Chief Magistrate, the 9-year-old disclosed how she was molested by the lawyer. This led to the Magistrate ordering the lawyer to be taken over to Lion Building Police Station, Lagos Island.
A police source from the station who confirmed the arrest of the lawyer said the Assistant Commissioner of Police had taken over the matter.
