The prosecuting counsel told the court that Nwaora committed the act in November 2015 after luring the victim's brother out of their apartment by sending him on an errand.

It was revealed that the defendant threatened to kill the victim if she revealed what happened to anyone. However, the victim let the cat out of the bag after her mother noticed some changes in her body.

The defending counsel, Worer Obuagbaka, requested that the matter be settled out of court for the interest of the 2-year-old child born as a result of the unlawful act.

"If he is jailed, it will not be in the interest of the new child who will go through trauma knowing that her father is languishing in jail. I will like to request for an adjournment to enable us to interact with the relations of the victim so that the defendant will be made to take care of the new child and the defiled child by an order of this court," he said.

The lead prosecutor, however, objected the defendant's request, stressing that Nwaora must lawfully pay for the alleged crimes. 

Justice Josephine Oyefeso adjourned the case to January 7 for definite trial or plea of bargain.
