The Chief Magistrate, Mr Tajudeen Elias, remanded Agboola in prison after he had pleaded guilty for defiling the minor.

Elias adjourned the case to Dec. 5 for sentencing.

The accused, who resides at Odutola St., Alimosho, a suburb of Lagos, was charged for defilement.

The Prosecutor, Sgt. Rafael Donny, told the court that the offence was committed on Oct. 28 at the accused residence.

Donny said that the accused defiled a 3-year-old daughter of his neighbour in his room.

“It was the cry of the baby that alerted her mother and caught the accused in the act,” he said.

He said that the offence contravenes Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
