Both have sexually assaulted the girl on different occasions, with her father and his friend taking turns.

The father, Yusuf Oriyomi, is being tried for sexually assaulting his own daughter.

His friend, Idowu Ayigoro, was arraigned for alleged sexual assault on the same girl. 

The father, a baker, resides at 24, Ferry Close, and his friend, a carpenter, resides at Arabamo Street, both in Oworoshoki, a suburb of Lagos. 

The prosecutor, Inspector Clifford Ogu, told the court that the offences were committed in 2012 and on April 30, 2017 at Oworonshoki. 

Ogu said that the girl’s mother had traveled to their village when the father woke her up at night and put his manhood between her thighs. 

He said: “When the girl’s mother came, she told her and also narrated how her father’s friend defiled her five years ago. 

“Hence, the case was reported at the police station by the mother and both accused were apprehended.”

The offence contravened Sections 137 and 259 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

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

The Chief Magistrate, Taiwo Akanni, granted the accused bail in the sum of 250,000 Naira each, with two sureties in like sum. 

Akanni adjourned the case until June 28.
