A 27-year-old painter accused of defiling a 14-year-old secondary school student is facing life imprisonment for the crime.

Jamiu Kamorudeen, a resident of No. 7, Edita St., Alakoro, Ebute-Ero on Lagos Island, was arraigned at a Tinubu Magistrates' Court on a two-count charge of conspiracy and defilement.

The Prosecutor, Sergeant Aondohemba Koti, said the accused and an accomplice still at large committed the offence on the 26th of April at Oke Arunde St., Lagos Island, around 8:00 p.m.

Koti said the accused had unlawful carnal knowledge of the teenager without her consent.

"While on her way, Kamorudeen, who had connived with his accomplice, lured the complainant into a secluded place where they raped her after they had overpowered her," Koti said.

"Kamorudeen's accomplice covered their victim’s mouth with a clothe to prevent her from raising an alarm that could have alerted passers-by about their action."

The victim then reported to her aunt who filed a report at the police.

Koti said said the offences contravene Sections 137 and 409 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011 which states that "any person who has sexual intercourse with a child is guilty of a felony and is liable to imprisonment for life."

Kamorudeen pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The Magistrate, Salama Matepo, granted him bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum and adjourned the case to May 20.
