Sexual and Gender Based Violence NHRC

A 41- year-old security guard, Nnamdi Dike, has allegedly defiled the 12-year-old daughter of his lover.

The suspect was remanded by an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos State, on Monday for sexual assault.

According to the prosecutor, ASP Raji Akeem, the defendant committed the offence in November 2022 around Ifako Ijaiye, Lagos.

The prosecutor said the 12- year-old victim had confided in her teacher how the defendant, being her mother’s lover, allegedly sexually molested her.

Akeem added that the defendant usually molested the victim whenever her mother was not at home and would threaten to kill her if she told anyone.

Akeem said the teacher, however, informed the victim’s mother, who reported the case at the police station.

The offence, the prosecutor said, contravened section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs Bola Osunsanmi, who refused to take the defendant‘s plea, ordered his remand in Kirikiri Correctional Center pending legal advice from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

The magistrate subsequently adjourned the case until June 26.
