A man has been imprisoned for allegedly defiling his lover's daughter.

On Monday, an Ikeja Chief Magistrates' Court ordered the remand of a 41-year-old man, Nnamdi Dyke, for the alleged defilement of his lover's 12-year-old daughter.

The defendant, a security guard, is being charged with sexual assault and lives at 27, Salami St., Akute, Ogun State.

Mrs Bola Osunsanmi, Chief Magistrate, ordered the defendant's remand in Kirikiri Correctional Centre pending legal advice from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

The magistrate subsequently adjourned the case until June 26.

Earlier, the prosecutor, ASP Raji Akeem told the court that the defendant committed the offence sometime in November 2022 at 37, Shogbade St., Power Line area, 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.
