A19-year-old man, Andrew Chinedu, has been remanded in prison over his alleged defilement of two of his sisters aged eight and six years.

Chinedu was yesterday arraigned before the Ogudu magistrate court where the magistrate, Mrs. E. Kubeinje, ordered that he be remanded in prison for 65 days pending the receipt of legal advice from the State Director of Public Prosecutions, DPPs.

Chinedu, an apprentice who resides in Irawo, was dragged before the magistrate court on a two-count charge of child defilement and sexual assault.
The police prosecutor, Inspector Lucky Ihiehie, told the court that the accused committed the offenses between the months of June 2018 and September 2018 at Abayomi Street, Irawo, in Ajegunle area of Ikorodu in Lagos State.  Ihiehie said the Lagos State Domestic and Social Violence Office, which initially handled the case and confirmed the violation of the girls, referred the father to report the case to the Police. Ihiehie said that the accused lived in the same compound with the parents of the girls. According to him, when the older of the siblings was questioned, she claimed that the accused normally calls her into his room when her parents were not around to have sex with her.

“Any time I refused, he would beat me.  He normally promises to buy me sweetly but he never did,” Ihiehie quoted the child as saying

The prosecutor also said that the six-year-old girl corroborated what her sister said and told the Police that the accused always had sex with her whenever their parents were not around and beat them if they refused.

“He would tell her he wants to show her something and carry her to his bed and remove her clothes. She said it was when her elder sister fell sick and their father took them to the hospital that she opened up to him.” Ihiehie said

He added that the offenses contravened Sections 137 and 259 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The Magistrate who refused the plea bargain of the suspect, adjourned the case until March 20 for the mention.
