A 24-year-old unemployed man, Blessing Agboola, was on Wednesday remanded in Kirikiri Prisons by an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court, for defiling a 3-year-old girl.
The Chief Magistrate, Tajudeen Elias, remanded him in prison after he had pleaded guilty for defiling the minor. The judge adjourned the case to December 5 for sentencing.
“It was the cry of the baby that alerted her mother and she caught the accused in the act.”
The man, who resides at Odutola St., Alimosho, Lagos, was charged for defilement. The Prosecutor, Sgt. Rafael Donny, told the court that the offence was committed on Oct. 28 at the accused residence.
Sgt. Donny said that the accused defiled a 3-year-old daughter of his neighbour in his room.
