A 23-year-old factory worker, Adejare Asekun, risks life imprisonment, if convicted of felony, for allegedly defiling a minor.

Asekun, who allegedly defiled his neighbour’s daughter, was on Wednesday brought before an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court.

The accused, who resides at 1, Ajano Close, Bamako Estate, Ojodu, a suburb of Lagos, is being tried for defilement.

The Prosecutor, Sgt. Raphael Donny, told the court that Asekun committed the offence on May 11 at his residence.

Donny said the accused called the 10-year-old girl to his room on the pretext of sending her on an errand.

“The accused shut the door behind the girl and defiled her,’’ he said.

The prosecutor said that the girl told her mother and the case was reported at the nearby police station.

The offence contravened Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Section 137 provides that any person who has unlawful sexual intercourse of a child, is guilty of felony and is liable to imprisonment for life.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs Davies Abegunde, admitted the accused to bail in the sum of N500,000 with two sureties in like sum.

Abegunde adjourned the case until June 5, for mention.
