An Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court, on Thursday remanded a 34-year-old man, Emenike Agugwo in a correction facility for allegedly defiling a 16-year old girl.

Agugwo who resides at Agodo in the Ikotun area of Lagos, is charged with defilement.

The Prosecutor, Insp John Iberedem, told the court that the suspect committed the offence at about 7:30p.m., on April 4 at Okesanya Street, Papa–Ajao, Lagos Barcha, Lagos.

Iberedem said that the suspect forcefully had sexual intercourse with the victim without her consent.

The prosecutor said the offence contravened Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs E. Kubeinje who did not take Agugwos’ plea, ordered that he should be remanded in a correctional centre.
