30-Year-Old Man Arrested For Having Sex With 13-Year-Old Girl Inside Market
A 30-year old man, Abdulwahab Adamu, has been arrested for allegedly engaging a 13-year old girl in sex inside the market in Lagos.
The suspect, Adamu, reportedly lured the victim into one of shops in the market, fondled her breasts, she became confused and in the process he removed her pant and penetrated her.
Adamu was then handed over to the Police in the area. The operatives later handed him over to the Gender Section of the Police Command for further investigation.
The Police found him culpable and later charged him before the Ogba Magistrates Court for defilement which attracts several years of imprisonment if he is found guilty.
The Court did not take his plea and ordered him to be remanded in a Correctional centre following the motion by the prosecutor, Supol Ezekiel Ayorinde, to the Court to refer the matter to the DPP for advice.
The Presiding Magistrate, Mrs. B.O. Osunsanmi, granted the request and ordered Adamu to be remanded and directed the prosecutor to duplicate the file and send to the DPP for advice.
The matter was adjourned till 10th August 2020 for report of the DPP’s advice to be available while the defendant remain in custody pending the outcome of DPP’s advice.
However, he may be transferred to the High Court if the DPP finds him culpable and recommends his trial for the alleged offence.
