24-year old man has been arrested after he allegedly raped an 11-year-old girl in Ajegunle area of Lagos state.
The 24-year old man, Daniel Udeme, has denied that he allegedly raped of the 11-year-old girl nd told the Police that under aged girls enjoy sex more in Ogbowankwo Lane, Ajegunle area of Lagos and it is not seen as rape.
According to P.M.EXPRESS, Udeme was arrested and detained by the Police operatives but later transferred to the Gender Section of the Police Command, Lagos, for defiling the victim because of her age.
The victim’s parents reported the alleged rape to the Police in the area and Udeme was arrested and detained for interrogation. During interrogation, Udeme reportedly told the Police that girls within such age bracket usually have sex without any disturbance in their area and the victim never complained that she was raped because she consented to it before they embarked on the romp before her parents knew.
However, the Police found Udeme culpable and later charged him before the Ogba Magistrates Court for defilement which attracts several years of imprisonment if he is tried and found guilty before the Court.
The Presiding Magistrate, Mr. P.E. Nwaka, ordered him to be remanded in prison custody without an option of bail. The matter was adjourned till 16th April, 2020.
