MAN ARRESTED FOR ALLEGEDLY ABDUCTING, HAVING SEX WITH 16-YEAR-OLD GIRL
A 24-year-old artisan, Solomon Akoma, who allegedly abducted a 16-year-old girl, on Tuesday appeared in an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court.
The Prosecution Counsel, ASP Benson Emuerhi, told the court that the defendant committed the offence between July 19 and July 24 at his residence.
Emuerhi alleged that the defendant took the victim away from her parents without their consent.
The case, he added, was reported at the Ejigbo police station by the victim’s father, Mr Sunday Enelume, on July 18.
He said that Enelume alleged that the defendant also had sexual intercourse with his daughter.
The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of Section 141 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 (Revised).
The defendant, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Chief Magistrate Olufunke Sule-Amzat admitted the defendant to bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum.
