A teenage boy has reportedly been hauled before the Ikeja Magistrates’ Court of law over accusations of defiling two minors.

The 16-yr-old is reported to be facing four counts bordering on defilement and assault.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Sections 137 and 259 stipulate imprisonment for life for the offender if found guilty.

NAN reports that the prosecutor, Sgt. Jimah Iseghede, told the court that the offences were committed on November 12 at the accused’s residence, saying:

“The accused lives with his parents in the same house with the victims and so it was easy for him to defile the girls, aged two and six. It was the cry of the two-year-old girl that attracted her mother and the accused was apprehended.”

The accused, whose name had been withheld, however, pleaded not guilty to the charges, even after being caught red handed.

The Chief Magistrate, Mr Tajudeen Elias, granted the accused bail set at a million naira with two sureties in like sum.

As part of the bail condition, the magistrate ordered the accused to deposit N250,000 into the court registrar’s account, with the case adjourned to January 6.
