Man remanded in prison for raping 10-year-old


An Ado-Ekiti Chief Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday remanded a 40-year-old man, Tajudeen Jamiu, at Ado-Ekiti Correctional Centre for allegedly raping a minor.

NAN reports that the Prosecutor, Insp. Caleb Leramo told the court that the defendant committed the offence on Feb. 23 in Ado-Ekiti.

Leramo said the defendant allegedly invited the minor into his room and defiled her.

He alleged that the defendant warned the minor not to inform anyone.

The prosecutor urged the court to remand the defendant in a correctional centre, pending issuance of legal advice by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

The plea of the defendant was not taken.

The Magistrate, Mrs Mojisola Salau, adjourned the case until April 14 for mention.
