An Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos on Friday ordered that a 47-year-old man, Abdulrahman Malik, who allegedly defiled his 17-year-old daughter, be remanded in custodial centre.
The police charged Malik with defilement.
Chief Magistrate O.G. Oghre, who did not take the plea of Ayinla, ordered that he should be remanded in the Ikoyi Custodial Centre.
The magistrate ordered the police to file the matter in the Ikeja Sexual and Domestic Violence court, Ikeja.
Oghre adjourned the matter until November 18 for mention.
Earlier, the Prosecutor, Inspector Kehinde Olatunde, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on September 28 at Olodu Area, Ikorodu.
He alleged that Malik defiled the 17-year-old girl, who is his daughter.
The offence, he noted, contravened the provisions of Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State.
