Two teachers arrested for defiling a 6-yr-old pupil have been admitted to N500, 000 bail.
Forty-two-year old Stanley Iheanacho and 26-year-old Hassan Olakunle, whose residential addresses were not given, however, pleaded not guilty before Magistrate O.A. Ogunbowale.
According to the prosecutor, ASP Eshiet Eshiet, the school workers took turns to insert their fingers in their pupil’s vagina in December 2016, at 4:00 p.m.
Eshiet said that the defilement occurred on the school’s premises in Amuwo Odofin, Lagos.
“The accused also sexually assaulted the little girl by giving her their penises to suck,” he said.
The offences contravene Sections 137, 259 and 409 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011, according to the prosecutor.
The magistrate granted the accused bail in the sum of N500, 000 each with two sureties in like sum.
She said that the sureties must be blood relations of the accused and should show evidence of tax payment to the Lagos State Government.
Ogunbowale adjourned the case to March 1 for the advice of the state director of public prosecutions.
