A 64-year-old man who was arrested for raping a 14-year-old girl defended himself by saying the teenager also enjoyed the sex as well as he did.
PM Express reports that Bruno who was charged before the Ogba Magistrates Court sitting in Lagos State on a one-count charge of assault, further said the victim was matured enough as he penetrated her with ease and the way she was responding and moaning to his thrusts without complaint showed that she really enjoyed the act as much as he did.
The incident reportedly happened at Badagry Road in the Apapa area of the state where both the suspect and the victim’s parents reside.
The police prosecutor told the court presided by Magistrate [Mrs.] Davis Abegunde, that Bruno had allegedly lured the victim to his apartment when her parents were not around and had sexual intercourse with her without her consent.
It was gathered that the suspect had been pestering the victim and usually offered her gifts before he allegedly raped her and warned her not to tell her parents.
The teenage victim had allegedly kept the secret until she summoned the courage and told her parents who had suspected her movements into Bruno's apartment.
When the suspect was confronted over the assault, he admitted but told the parents of the girl that their daughter had been indulging in sex before then as her private was already open which made it easy for him to penetrate her.
The matter was reported to the police and the suspect arrested and charged to court where he pleaded not guilty when the charge was read to him.
Magistrate [Mrs.] Abegunde granted the suspect bail in the sum of N500,000 with two sureties in like sum but ordered that he should be remanded in prison custody pending when he will perfect his bail condition while the case was adjourned till September 18, 2017.
