A 56-year-old man, Sunday Obamuwagun, has been remanded in the Kirikiri Prison for allegedly raping his 15-year-old daughter, by an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court sitting in Lagos State.

Obamuwagun who resides on Aina Ajayi Street in Alakuko area of the state, was arraigned on a one-count charge bordering on rape for defiling his own daughter.

The prosecuting police officer, Inspector Benedict Aigbokhan, who said the offence was committed sometimes in 2012 at the defendant’s residence, told the court that Obamuwagun started raping his daughter when she was 12, following which she ran away from him and joined her mother.

“When the mother travelled, the victim went back to her father’s house and there, a fight ensued between them and she told the neighbours what had happened.

The victim told her half-brother and they went to the police station and the accused was apprehended,” Aigbokhan told the court.

When the charge was read to him, Obamuwagun pleaded not guilty and the Chief Magistrate Tajudeen Elias, ordered that he be remanded in prison while the case was adjourned till Wednesday, March 9, for mention.
