34-year old man arraigned for raping his neighbour’s 10-year-old daughter

A 34-year old man, Kayode Oladosu has been charged before an Ejigbo Magistrate’s court, Lagos for allegedly having carnal knowledge of his neighbour’s 10-year old daughter.

Oladosu, from Ibadan, Oyo State, Southwest Nigeria, reportedly lured the little girl into his room at Kudeyibu Estate, Isheri-Osun, Lagos.

After the rape, she started bleeding and went home to meet her parents with blood stained dress.

The matter was reported to the police at Isheri-Oshun Division and Oladosu was arrested and charged to court.

Narrating her ordeal, the victim said that she was sent to buy some items in a provision store in their area when Oladosu lured her to his room.

At the court Oladosu said he was in a financial mess and could not get money to give to women in order to have sex with them because he has no steady job. He said he did not want to injure the girl but only wanted to satisfy his sexual desire.

“I did not intend to injure her, I just pushed my penis a little bit to release,” he explained.

When the charge was read to him, he pleaded not guilty.

The trial magistrate, Mrs. E.E. Kubenje, holding brief for Mrs M. B. Folami who is on leave, granted him bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum.

The matter was adjourned till 14 November, 2012.

He was remanded in prison custody at Kirikiri, Apapa pending when he will fulfill his bail condition.
