A social worker, Mr Ebenezer Omejalile, on Thursday, narrated before a court how a teacher, Ramoni Amure, allegedly threatened a minor (name withheld) with a sex tape to repeatedly defile her.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Omejalile testified before an Ikeja Sexual Offences and Domestic Violence Court.

He was the second prosecution witness in the trial of 42-year-old Amure for defilement and attempts to procure abortion.

The witness, who is also the Coordinator of the Advocates for Children and Vulnerable Persons Network, was led in evidence by Mrs Zainab Dindi.

He said that he was alerted about the 15-year-old’s plight by her cousin (name withheld) who asked him to intervene and alert relevant authorities.

“The survivor was in Oshodi undergoing JAMB lessons.

“A cousin to the survivor was able to own up to me that the perpetuator had a video in his possession that he used to threaten her whenever he wanted to have sexual intercourse with her.

“Whenever she declined, he threatened that he would upload the video he recorded online to make her give in to his demand.

“The survivor explained what she had been going through in the hands of the perpetrator.

“It took us some time before the survivor gave us the address of the perpetrator because we noticed that she was full of fear because of his threats,” he said.

NAN reports that according to the prosecution, Amure who was the minor’s neighbour, committed the alleged offences between December 2018 and March 2020 at the survivor’s home.

“He defiled the 15-year-old by having sexual intercourse with her.

“Between March 2020 and July 2020, he illegally gave her a drug called Mifegyne to procure an abortion,” the prosecution said.

The alleged offences contravene Sections 142(1)(2) and 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

Justice Rahman Oshodi adjourned the case until Oct. 21 for continuation of trial. (NAN)
