Court

An Ikeja Magistrates’ Court in Lagos on Monday, December 4, remanded Reuben Temitope, 30, for allegedly abducting and defiling a 13-year-old girl.

Mrs. E. Kubeinje, the Magistrate, who refused to take the defendant’s plea, ordered that he be held at the Kirikiri Correctional Centre.

Kubeinje asked the police to forward the case file to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for legal guidance.

She adjourned the case until January 16, 2024, pending receipt of the DPP’s advice.

Temitope, who lives on Meiran Road in the Alagbado region of Lagos State, was charged with five counts of kidnapping, illicit sexual intercourse, and possession of criminal charm.

DSP Kehinde Ajayi, the Prosecution Counsel, told the court that the defendant and others at large committed the crime on Nov. 20 at his apartment.

“The defendant abducted the minor from Bankole Olanrewaju Street, Off Agas Dalemo at Alakuko area and took her to his house.

“He had in his possession a criminal charm which he used to attack the girl,” Ajayi added.
