An Ilorin Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday ordered the remand of one Afeez Ajakaiye at Oke-Kura Correctional Centre for allegedly defiling a six-year-old girl.
The police arraigned the accused person on a one-count charge of rape which contravened section 282 of Penal Code.
The court thereafter adjourned the matter until June 1 for further mention.
Earlier, the Police prosecutor, Insp. Moshood Adebayo, said the matter was reported by one
Yahaya Issah at C-Divisional Police Headquarters, Oja-Oba Ilorin, that he received a phone call from his wife, claiming Ajakaiye had raped his six years old daughter.
He added that Issah claimed to have met his daughter with clothes soaked in blood and blood was coming out of her private organ when he got home.
He said further that an investigation conducted at the Juvenile Welfare Centre/Gender/Child protection unit showed that the accused, who is 16 years old, deceived the victim into his room and raped her under the pretence of buying her sweet.
Adebayo said that doctor’s report also revealed that deep tear and lacerations were inflicted on the victim’s private organ due to forceful entry of manhood.
The Police prosecutor prayed the court for the remand of Ajakaiye, saying it would act as a deterrent for those that might want to indulge in the shameful act.
