Also, an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court yesterday remanded a 56-year-old trader, Matthew Njoku, for allegedly defiling his neighbour’s two daughters, aged 13 and 11.
The Magistrate, Mrs. B.O. Osunsanmi, who did not take the plea of the defendant, ordered that he should be kept at the Kirikiri Custodial Centre, pending advice of the state Director of Public Prosecutions. Osunsanmi adjourned the case until February 2 for mention.
“The parents of the girls got a tip-off from a neighbour that the defendant always had carnal knowledge of their daughters in their absence. The parents interrogated their daughters and they told them how the defendant always called them into his room and had sex with them after which he would give them money and ask them to tell no one,” he said.
Ayorinde said the parents of the girls reported the case to the police, resulting in the arrest of the defendant.
