A 50-year-old man who raped a 14-year-old girl has been charged to court.
A 50-year-old man who claimed to be a Pastor, Cornelius Ogunleye, will be regretting the vile spirit that possessed him and pushed him into raping a 14-year-old girl, as he has now been charged before a Yaba Chief Magistrate Court sitting in Lagos.
Ogunleye, who resides at 4, Abiodun Street, Makoko, Yaba area of the state, according to the prosecutor, ASP Peter Nwangwu, committed the offences in December 2014, at his residence, after he lured the girl into his house and defiled her.
Nwangwu said Ogunleye who had been finding means of starting a relationship with the teenager, sent her on an errand to buy sachet water for him and when she took the water to him, he locked his door and forcefully had carnal knowledge of her.
When the charges were read to him, the cleric pleaded not guilty and was granted bail in the sum of N200,000 by the Chief Magistrate, A. F. Adeeyo, who then adjourned the case till August 3, 2015, for trial.
