P.M.EXPRESS reports that the incident happened at Greenland Estate, Isheri Olofin area of Lagos, where they reside.
It was alleged that the suspect, Isiaka, lured the victim into his apartment, used words of mouth to hold her, fondled her breasts and she became confused. He then reportedly lured her to the bed, removed her pant and penetrated her.
Thereafter, the victim regained her senses and protested that she was raped because she did not consent to the act.
The matter was reported to the Police in the area; Isiaka was arrested and later transferred to the Gender Section of the Police Command.
After interrogation, he was found culpable and later charged before the Ogba Magistrates Court.
He was remanded following a motion by the prosecutor, Supol Ezekiel Ayorinde, for the Court to refer the matter to the DPP for advice.
The Presiding Magistrate, Mrs. B.O. Osunsanmi, ordered the defendant, Isiaka, to be remanded in prison custody without an option of bail while she directed the prosecutor to duplicate the file and send to the DPP for advice.
The matter was adjourned till 26th March, 2020. The case may be transferred to the High Court for trial if the DPP finds him culpable and recommends his trial for the alleged offence over jurisdiction.
