Trader arraigned for defiling minors



A 48-year old trader, who allegedly defiled two under-age daughters of his co-tenants, was on Monday charged before an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos.

The accused, Peter Nwake, who resides at No. 17 Olusegun Close, Oshodi, Lagos, is facing a two- count charge of child defilement, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.

The Prosecutor, Insp. Simon Imhonwa, told the court that the accused committed the offence on March 28 at his residence.

According to him, the accused allegedly took the advantage of the innocence and poor guardianship of the minors.

He said the accused repeatedly abused the two young daughters of his co-tenants.

Imhonwa explained that the accused was apprehended after the older of the two young girls identified him as the predator.

The prosecutor said the offence contravened Section 135 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
