A 35-year-old father, Temitayo Bamiro, was on Monday docked at an Ojo Magistrate’s Court, Lagos, South-West Nigeria, for allegedly defiling his 13-year-old daughter.

Bamiro had pleaded not guilty to the one-count charge preferred against him.

The prosecutor, Dr. Simon Uche, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on January 7, 2023, at the Iba New Site in Ojo, Lagos.

He said that Bamiro was in the habit of sexually assaulting his daughter and had forcefully penetrated her anus repeatedly in the past without her consent.

The offence, according to the prosecutor, contravened the Criminal Laws of Lagos State.

Presiding Magistrate Mr L.J.K Layeni had referred the case file to the Directorate of Public Prosecution for legal advice, adjourning the case to February 22, 2023, for mention.

Mr. Layeni also ordered that Bamiro be remanded at the Badagry Custodial Centre, Lagos.
