Court remands unemployed man for defiling neighbour’s underage daughter

An Ikeja Magistrates’ Court in Lagos on Friday remanded a 35-year-old man, Anozie Francis, at the Kirikiri Prisons, Apapa, for allegedly defiling a neighbour’s underage daughter.

The Chief Magistrate, Mr Tajudeen Elias, remanded the accused and adjourned the case till Dec. 19 for ruling on his bail application.
The accused, an unemployed, who lives at 9, Odewale St., Iyana-Ipaja, a suburb of Lagos, is facing a two- count charge of defilement and fingering.
The prosecutor, Sgt. Jimah Iseghede, told the court that the offences were committed on Nov. 7 at the accused’s residence.
According to Iseghede, the accused inserted his finger into the five- year-old girl’s private part and thereafter, defiled her.
“It was the cry of the child that attracted her mother and she caught the accused in the act.
“Also the child had a finger wound all over her private part and bled profusely,’’ he said.
The accused pleaded `not guilty’ to the two-count charge.
