Man defiles, impregnates 12-year-old girl in Lagos


An Ikeja magistrate’s court on Wednesday ordered the remand of a 20-year-old man, Temitope Agbebiyi, for defiling and impregnating a 12-year-old girl.

The police charged Agbebiyi who resides at Mafoluku, Oshidi area of Lagos State, with defilement and indecent treatment of a child.

The prosecutor, DSP Kehinde Ajayi, told the court that Agbebiyi committed the offence in January, 2022, on Wahab Larinde Street, Mafoluku.

She said Agbebiyi lured the girl to his house and defiled her which resulted in a pregnancy.

The Magistrate, Mrs Ejiro Kubeinje, who did not take Agbebiyi’s plea, ordered that he should be remanded in Kirikiri Correctional Centre.

Kubeinje directed the police to send the case file to the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) for legal advice and adjourned to July. (NAN)
