3 Men In Prison Over Alleged Defilement Of 14-Year-Old Girl
Magistrate courts across the country continue to entertain cases of sexual abuse at an alarming rate and one wonders if the current laws can ever curb the crime.
An Ado-Ekiti Chief Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday ordered the remand of three men for the same crime – they allegedly raped a 14-year-old girl.
The defendants, Samuel Farotimi (27), Sunday Ajimoko (40) and Tayo Ilugbo (40), whose addresses were not provided, are facing a two-count charge of conspiracy and rape.
The prosecutor, Oriyomi Akinwale, told the court that the defendants committed the offences on January 29, at about 9.00.p.m. at Odo, Ado-Ekiti.
Akinwale said the accused persons conspired among themselves and raped the minor while she was coming back from an errand.
The Magistrate, Mrs Dolapo Akosile, ordered that the three men should be remanded in prison until the next adjourned date which is March 14.
