Court remands man, 38, over alleged anal sex with minor

By Moronke Boboye, Ikeja.


An Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court on Monday remanded a 38-year-old man, Samuel Emmanuel, to Kirikiri Correctional Centre for allegedly having anal sex with a minor.


The Chief Magistrate, Mrs B.O Osunsanmi, refused to listen to the defendant’s plea.


Osunsanmi ordered the accused to be remanded in Kirikiri Correctional Centre until Jan. 25, pending the reception of a legal advice from the state Directorate of Public Prosecutions.


The defendant, a baker, who resides at Ileejo area, Lekki, Lagos, is facing trial for alleged sexual assault.


The Police Prosecutor, ASP Raji Akeem, told the court that the offence was committed on Nov. 25 at Ile-Ojo area, Ibeju, Lekki, Lagos.


Akeem said that the defendant called the victim, a 12-year-old girl, who hawks cow skin, on the pretence that he wanted to buy from her.


The prosecutor said that the defendant dragged the girl inside his room and forcefully had anal sex on her.


Akeem said that neighbours, who heard the girl’s screams, rushed to break the door and rescued her but she had already been molested.


According to the prosecutor, the offence contravenes Section 261 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
