A 37-year old man, Olamide Jimoh, has denied that he defiled a 10-year old girl but told the Police in Lagos that he only opened her private part to check her up and did not force his way into her.
P.M.EXPRESS reports that the incident happened at Popoola Street, Elliot area of Iju Ishaga, Lagos, where they reside.
The matter was reported to the Police at Isokoko Division; Jimoh was arrested and detained at the Police Station for interrogation.
During interrogation, he told the Police that he did not penetrate her because she was still a minor and cannot bear the size of his dick.
However, the victim told the Police that the suspect, Jimoh, lured her to his apartment, removed her pant and tried forcing his dick into her private part.
The Police then asked Jimoh what he was checking inside her private part since he claimed that he did not defile the victim but he was unable to explain. Besides, medical reports stated that her private part was ruptured.
Hence, he was charged before the Ogba Magistrates Court for defilement which attracts several years of imprisonment if he is tried and found guilty before the Court.
The Court did not take his plea after the prosecutor, Supol Benson Emerhi, asked the Court to refer the matter to the DPP for advice.
Thus, the Presiding Magistrate, Mrs. O. Sule-Amzat, ordered Jimoh to be remanded in prison custody without an option of fine.
The Court also ordered the prosecutor to duplicate the file and send to the DPP for advice while Jimoh will remain in custody pending the outcome of DPP’s report.
The matter was adjourned till 26th March, 2020. The matter may likely be moved to the High Court if the DPP finds him culpable and recommends that he should be tried for defilement.
