Samuel Adebayo, who resides at Beckley Estate, Abule Egba, a suburb of Lagos, is being tried for rape and an attempt to commit abortion. 

The 30-year-old driver was accused of raping the 17-year-old twin sisters and impregnating one of them.

He was on Thursday brought before an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court.

He was said to have raped the girls on different occasions. The prosecutor said he gave the pregnant twin 20,000 Naira to terminate the pregnancy but instead, she confided in her elder sister, who informed their mother. 

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges. 

The Chief Magistrate, Davies Abegunde, admitted the accused to a bail of N500,000 with two sureties in like sum. 

The case was adjourned to June 5.
