A 17-year-old boy has been arrested for allegedly sleeping with a 15-year-old, his girlfriend who he abducted in Lagos.
The incident reportedly happened at Obagunwa Lane, Onilekere Cement area of Lagos, where they reside according to P.M News.
The 17-year-old boy who was remanded in juvenile detention following his arraignment before the Ogba Magistrates Court in Lagos is now facing the charge which attracts several years of imprisonment if he is tried and found guilty of the alleged offence against the 15-year-old girl before the Court..
The boy allegedly lured the girl from her parent’s house and took her to where they engaged in marathon sex, Police said.
After the girl’s parents began looking for her, she returned home where she confessed that she went somewhere with her lover where they engaged in sex. Her parents became angry claiming the boy had defiled their daughter as she was no longer virgin.
Her parents reported to the Police their daughter had been abducted and defiled by the boy and this led to his arrest after which he was charged before the Court.
The Court did not take his plea following a motion by the prosecutor, Supol Benson Emerhi, asking the Court to refer the matter to the DPP for advice.
The two are not named as the organisation states that they are minors.
The matter was adjourned by the the Presiding Magistrate, Mrs. O. Sule-Amzat till 16th April, 2020.
