factory worker rape - Man accused of raping 13-yr-old remanded in prison

A 55-year-old man, Mfon Iyang, who allegedly raped a teenage girl, was on Monday remanded in  Kirikiri prison by an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs Folakemi Davies-Abegunde,  refused to  grant the bail application for the accused and ordered his remand in  prison.

The accused, an auto mechanic, who resides at Fagba, a suburb of Lagos,  is on trial  for rape.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Sgt. Rachael Donny,  told the court that offence was committed on Jan. 8 at the workshop  of the accused in Fagba, Lagos.

Donny said that the 13-year-old girl  was sent on an errand to the  workshop by her brother.

“When the girl got there, she met only the accused and after delivering the message, she was about going when he dragged her inside the workshop.

“The accused covered her mouth so that her voice would not be heard and raped her,” Donny said.

Donny added that the girl cried to the house and told the brother what happened.

“The case was reported at the police station and the accused was arrested,” he said.

The offence, he added,  contravened Section 259 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

Davies-Abegunde adjourned the case till  Feb. 14 for hearing on bail application
