I’m not guilty of raping my daughter, man tells Lagos court

CITIZENS COMPASS- AN Ojo Magistrate’s Court in Lagos State has docked a 35-year-old man, Temitayo Bamiro for allegedly defiling his 13-year-old daughter.

The matter came up on Monday, January 23, 2023.

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

The prosecutor, Dr Simon Uche, told the court that the defendant was in the habit of sexually assaulting his daughter and had forcefully penetrated her anus repeatedly in the past without her consent.

The offence, he added, contravened the Criminal Laws of Lagos State.

Magistrate, Mr L.J.K Layeni, referred the case file to the Directorate of Public Prosecution for legal advice and adjourned the case to Feb. 22 for mention.

He also ordered the remand of Bamiro at the Badagry Custodial Centre.
