A 23-year-old man, Sodiq Moshood, was on Thursday brought before an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos for allegedly defiling a five-year-old girl.

Moshood was said to have forced his fingers into the child’s vagina.

The accused, of no fixed address, is to stand trial on a two-count charge of having unlawful carnal knowledge and indecent assault.

He, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges.

He said that the offences contravened Sections 135 and 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs Oluyemisi Adelaja, granted the accused bail in the sum of N500, 000 with two sureties in like sum.

The case was adjourned until April 12 for advice from the Lagos Stat director of public prosecutions (DPP).
