75-year-old sexually assaults 14-year-old neighbour’s daughter
By uary 16, 2017@d
The Police on Thursday in Lagos arraigned a septuagenarian, Samuel Adesogaat, for allegedly assaulting a neighbour’s 14-year-old daughter sexually.
The 75-year-old, who resides at 11, Ifelodun St., Oworonshoki, Lagos, is being tried for sexual assault at an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court.
The prosecutor, Sgt. Raphael Donny told the court that the offence was committed sometime in December 2016 at the accused’s residence.
Donny alleged that the accused lured the girl into his room on the pretext of sending her on an errand.
“The accused fingered her and told her not to tell anyone.
“The accused allegedly called the girl again to his room and was about to carry out the act when one of the neighbours caught him in the act.
“The girl admitted to the police that the accused had fingered her before,” he said.
The offence contravened Section 135 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the section states that any person who sexually touches another person without his or her consent is liable to three years imprisonment.
Adesogaat, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.
Ruling on the bail application of the accused, the Chief Magistrate, Mrs Davies Abegunde, granted him bail in the sum of N500,000 with two sureties in like sum.
Abegunde ordered the accused to pay N50,000 into the court’s registrar’s account as part of the bail condition.
She adjourned the case to March 8 for the State Director of Public Prosecution’s advice. (NAN)
