The prosecutor, Insp. Clifford Ogu, told the court that the accused committed the offence on May 11 in his residence at Burahimo Street, Bariga in Lagos State.
Ogu said that the accused invited a 14-year-old girl, daughter of his neighbour, into his room on the pretext that he was sending her on an errand.
“The accused shut the door at her and raped her,’’ he said.
Ogu said that the girl told her mother, who reported the case to the police which led to the arrest of the accused.

Akanni adjourned the case until June 19 for a mention.

dont talk like that, the matter need to be investigated, some women and not to be trusted, there is posibilities that the boy is innocent and the girl is telling lies
just to ensure the boy is made to suffer because of little misunderstanding they might have.
i dont trust women sometimes, we men are quickly gullible to believe and accept whenever a woman accused a man of rape.
