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)
