News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that Onajobi, a farmer who resides at resident Bogije Street, Ibeju-Lekki, Lagos, is standing trial on a two-count of unlawful carnal knowledge of his daughter after being dragged to the court by the National Agency for the Prohibition of Traffic in Persons and other Related Matters (NAPTIP).

In the charge sheet, it was learnt that the accused was alleged to have committed the offence in 2010 and arraigned on July 8, 2013, before Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke, following the transfer of the first trial judge, Justice Barbara Molokwu, from the Lagos Division of the court.

He had pleaded not guilty to the charge, and Justice Aneke remanded him at the Ikoyi Prisons pending determination of his bail application.

Following Aneke’s transfer from Lagos Division, Justice Muslim Hassan now presides over the matter.

The prosecution had told the court that after the death of his wife, the accused sexually assaulted his only daughter several times. It stated that the accused intimidated and repeatedly had forceful carnal knowledge of his daughter, who eventually became pregnant for him.
