Hameed Ayinla, a 37-year-old man, has allegedly defiled his nine-year-old step daughter.
On account of the report, an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos on Monday ordered that the man be remanded in a custodial centre.
Ayinla, was charged with defilement by the Police.
Chief Magistrate F.M Kayode–Alamu, who did not take the plea of Ayinla; ruled that he be remanded in the Ikoyi Custodial Centre.
In addition, the magistrate ordered the Police to file the matter at the Ikeja Sexual and Domestic Violence Court.
Thereafter, Kayode–Alamu adjourned the matter until December 10 for mention.
Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, Olu Olubiyi told the court that Ayinla committed the offence on September 13; at No. 6, Kunle Ojo St., Ori-Okuta, Owutu Ikorodu.
He alleged that Ayinla defiled the nine-year-old girl who is his step daughter.
The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State which prescribes life imprisonment for convicts.
