15-Year-Old Girl Defiled And Impregnated By 4 Men

On Thursday, four men, who allegedly defiled a 15- year-old girl leading to her conception were remanded in Lagos, at Kirikiri Prisons by an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court.

Henry Edmond, 47, metal fabricator; Richard Effiong, 22, businessman; Simeon Michael, 30, self employed; and Ashumu Muhammed, 33, security guard are being tried for defilement.

Magistrate Mrs B.O. Osunsanmi refused to take the plea of the accused but ordered that they should be kept behind bars pending advice from the State Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

“Based on the sensitivity of the case, it is difficult to grant bail. Bail will be at the discretion of the court.

“Case file should be documented and sent to the office of the DPP for advice,” she said.

The accused committed the offences between December 2016 and May 2018 at different parts of Ajah and Lekki, Lagos, the Police prosecutor, ASP Ezekiel Ayorinde, told the court.

He said that the accused unlawfully assaulted the girl by penetrating into her private parts on separate occasions. “The accused have been having carnal knowledge of the girl which resulted in pregnancy.”

Ayorinde said that when the girl’s aunty discovered that she was pregnant, she questioned her.

“The girl, who is five months pregnant, mentioned all the men that have been sleeping with her since her aunty brought her to Lagos in 2016 to be helping her take care of her children.

“Her Aunty’s husband, Henry Edmond, was the first to start sleeping with her and he always threatened to kill her if she tells the aunty.

“The other accused sleep with her in their houses and shops in the process of hawking `puff puff’ for her aunty.

“The case was reported and the accused were arrested,” the prosecutor said.

The offence contravened Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015(Revised).

The section prescribes life imprisonment for defilement.

The case was adjourned until July 23 for mention.
