Court remands security guard for allegedly raping 13-year-old girl in Lagos


An Ikeja Magistrates’ Court has ordered the remand of a 50-year-old security guard, Mohammed Sanni in the Nigerian Correctional Service facility for allegedly defiling a 13-year-old girl.

The Presiding Chief Magistrate, O.A Layinka, who did not take Sanni’s plea, ordered that the case file should be sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions for legal advice.

Layinka adjourned the case until March 28, pending the DPP’s advice.

The prosecutor, Insp Lucky Ihieme, had told the court that Sanni committed the offence on January 8 at Obidiegwu Street, Iyana School, Iba, Lagos.

He said Sanni invited the victim to eat “suya”, ( meat kebab) in an uncompleted building where he took advantage of the girl and defiled her.

Ihieme said the offence contravened the provisions of sections 137 and 261 Criminal Laws of Lagos State (2015).

The offence is punishable by life imprisonment according to Lagos State laws.
