Ghanaian, 60, Docked Over S*x With Neighbour’s Daughter, 11
Posted on August 4, 2022
A 60-year old Ghanaian resident in Nigeria, Edward Quayson, has landed in trouble in Lagos State after he allegedly lured his neighbour’s 11-year old daughter, engaged her in sex and he was caught.
P.M.EXPRESS reports that the suspect, Quayson, has been arrested.
The incident happened at Kalejaiye Street, Shasha area of Lagos, where they reside.
According to Police sources, the girl and other children were kept in the care of the suspect by their mother and she went to work.
However, before the mother would return from work, the suspect had already defiled the girl by penetration and had injured her private part in the process.
The matter was reported to the Police and the suspect was arrested. He was later transferred to the Gender Section of the Lagos State Police Command for interrogation over the conduct.
During interrogation, he admitted to have done so with the consent of the girl but that did not save him as the Police found him culpable and subsequently charged before the Ogba Magistrates Court for the alleged offence.
When he was arraigned, the Court did not take his plea following a motion moved by the prosecutor, Supol Akeem Raji, asking the Court to refer the matter to the DPP for advice since the victim is still a minor.
The Chief Magistrate, B. O. Osunsanmi, ordered Quayson to be remanded in custody pending legal advice from the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions, (DPP).
The Court adjourned the matter till 18th August, 2022, for mention for the report of the DPP to be available, which will determine if the matter will be transferred to the High Court or not over jurisdiction.
