A 34-year-old man, Tunde Eyifunjowo, was yesterday arraigned before an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court for allegedly defiling a seven-year-old girl.
Magistrate B.O. Osunsanmi ordered him remanded in Kirikiri Prison after refusing to take his plea.
She ordered that the accused be kept in custody, pending advice by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
Prosecuting Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Ezekiel Ayorinde had told the court that the accused committed the offence last November at his home.
He alleged that the accused defiled the seven-year-old daughter of his co-tenant.
“The accused called the girl inside his room, gave her biscuit and had sex with her.
“The girl, who is living with her grandmother, told her what the accused did to her.
“She said that was the fourth time the accused would make love to her.
“Her grandmother reported the case and the accused was arrested,” Ayorinde said.
The case continues on January 21.
