A Magistrates’ Court in Ikeja, Lagos, on Friday ordered that a 35-year-old man, Kingsley Emmanuel, be remanded in a correctional center for allegedly defiling a 12-year-old girl.

The police charged Emmanuel with a count charge of defilement.

Magistrate O.A Ajibade, who did not take the plea of Emmanuel, ordered that he should be remanded in the Nigerian Correctional Service center in Kirikiri, Lagos, pending legal advice.

Ajibade ordered the police to send the case file to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for legal advice.

The magistrate adjourned the case until Aug.9

Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, DSP Kehinde Ajayi told the court that Emmanuel, who lives in Ipaye-Iba, Lagos, committed the offense on Dec. 27, 2020.

She said Emmanuel sexually assaulted the victim.

The offense, she said, contravened the provisions of section 261 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State, 2015. (NAN)
