Landlord defiles tenant’s 9-yr-old daughter in Ekiti
Dauda Jimoh, a 59-year-old landlord has been arraigned by the police before an Ado Ekiti Chief Magistrates’ Court for allegedly defiling his tenant’s nine-year-old girl.
Monica said Jimoh committed the act for which he was arraigned on September 22, 2019, at Ilupeju Ekiti in the Oye Ekiti Local Government Area of the state.
She stated, “The defendant, who is the landlord to the victim’s mother, usually defiled the victim whenever her mother was not at home.
“It was when the victim’s elder sister saw the accused on top of her sister that she called her mother’s attention to the incident.
“The victim said the defendant had defiled her five times, while the defendant said it was only twice that he violated her.
“The offence contravenes Section 31 of the Child Right Law of Ekiti State, 2012.”
According to The Punch, the police prosecutor urged the court to remand the accused in a correctional facility pending legal advice from office of the Director of Public Prosecutions.
The Chief Magistrate, Mrs Adefumike Anoma, ordered the remand of the accused in a correctional facility and adjourned the case till November 11 for mention.
