When your girlfriend says 'no sex before marriage', it might really help to heed the advice and keep your libido in check.

Ajao Olalekan (29) and his girlfriend (name withheld) had an agreement between them not to have sexual intercourse until after they are married.

But on March 19, the stirring in his loins got the better of him.

“On the day of the incident, the accused invited his girlfriend to his house; the defendant’s friend was in the sitting room.

“The accused took his girlfriend inside the room, his friend increased the volume of the television, and the accused forcefully deflowered her.

“Investigation revealed that he had planned with his friend to increase the volume of the television when he takes her inside.

“It was then she cried out and reported to the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Response Team, which took up the case, and reported it at the Igbogbo Police Station,” the police prosecutor told an Ikorodu Chief Magistrates’ Court.

Olalekan, resident of Morayo Benson Street, Ikorodu, was on Friday arraigned for alleged forceful sexual intercourse with his 19-year-old girlfriend.

He is facing a charge of forceful sexual intercourse, to which he pleaded not guilty.

The prosecutor, Cpl. John Iberedem, told the court that the accused committed the offence at his residence around 2PM on the said date.

“The girl in question was the accused girlfriend, but there was an agreement between them that there won’t be any sexual intercourse until after they are married,” he said.

Iberedem said the offence contravened Section 258 of the Criminal Code Laws of Lagos State, which stipulates life imprisonment for offenders.

The Magistrate, Mrs Abiodun Shoniyi, granted him bail in the sum of 150,000, Naira with two sureties that must show evidence of three years tax payment.

Soniyi adjourned the case until May 11, for trial.
