Police nab welder, 51, for defiling seven-year-old girl


On Thursday, the Ikeja Magistrates’ Court remanded a 51-year-old welder, Fatai Amidu, in Kirikiri Prisons custody for defiling his neighbour’s seven-year-old daughter.

The chief magistrate, B.O. Osunsanmi, who did not take the plea of Mr Amidu, ordered that the case file be sent to the director of public prosecutions for advice.

Ms Osunsanmi adjourned the case until February 8 for the DPP’s advice.

The defendant is facing a charge of defilement.

Police prosecutor, ASP Raji Akeem, told the court that the defendant committed the offence on August 17, 2022, at No 97C, Okun, Ajah, Lagos.

The cop revealed that the defendant lured the girl to his room and had sexual intercourse with her.

“He told the girl not to tell anyone. She, however, told her grandmother when she felt pains in her private parts,” the prosecutor explained.
