Man sent to Kirikiri prison over defilement of 12-year-old 2

By Kalu Onyemaechi

An Ikeja Magistrates Court in Lagos has remanded a 30-year-old trader, Monday Daniel, on Wednesday after he was accused of defiling a 12-year-old girl.

According to People’s Gazette, the magistrate, Ejiro Kubeinje, has ordered that he should be remanded in Kirikri Correctional Centre.
She did not take the defendant’s plea.

Mrs. Kubeinje, however, directed the police to send the case file to the state Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for advice.


She adjourned the case until January 25, 2022, for the outcome of the DPP’s advice.

The police arraigned Mr Daniel, who resides in Agege, Lagos State, with a charge of defilement.

The prosecution counsel, Bisi Ogunleye; told the court that the defendant committed the offence on October 9 at his residence.

“He had sexual intercourse with the girl and begged her not to tell anyone. The girl, however, narrated to her mother how the defendant forcefully had sex with her.


“The case was reported at the police station and the defendant was arrested,” the prosecutor said.

The offence violates Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The section prescribes life imprisonment for defilement.
