Father allegedly have canal knowledge of his 3 daughters ages 9, 7 and 5 years old
The Ikeja Magistrates’ Court has remanded a 43-year-old man, Ademola Oladimeji, for allegedly defiling his three daughters.
According to reports, the suspect, a resident of Fadeyi, Lagos State, was arraigned on a two-count charge of defilement and assault.
The Prosecution Counsel, DSP Kehinde Ajayi, told the court that Oladimeji committed the offence sometime in 2021, in his residence at Fadeyi.
She said that the mother of the girls had reported that the accused had been defiling their daughters aged nine, seven, and five by allegedly inserting his finger into their private part.
She mentioned that when the girls’ mother found out, she confronted her husband and was angry, leading to beatings and injuries inflicted on her body.
She contended that defilement attracts life imprisonment according to Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2005.
In the ruling, the Magistrate, A.O. Ajibade, who refused to take Oladimeji’s plea, directed the police to send the case file to the state Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for advice.
She adjourned the case until March 2 for the DPP’s advice and directed the suspect be remanded in Kirikiri Correctional Centre.
