Man, 30, rapes 11-year-old girl

LAGOS—Police in Lagos have arraigned a 30-year-
old factory worker, Peter Ekom, before a
Magistrate’s Court sitting in Ikeja for allegedly
raping an 11-year-old girl (names withheld).
The defendant was docked before Magistrate B. O.
Osunsanmi over the offence allegedly committed
on November 3 at 43, Ariori Street, Mafoluku,
Oshodi, Lagos.
Ekom is facing a count charge of rape made
against him by the police.
According to Mr. Kingsley Eboh, husband to the
victim’s aunty, Mrs. Elizabeth Eboh, the suspect got
hold of the victim when she returned from school
and was undressing, then forcibly penetrated her
and warned her not to tell anybody.
Eboh said: “He followed her into the room, gave
her N100 and asked her to meet him in the toilet
but she declined. Ekom requested to collect his
money back but she ran away.
“On November 3, at about 2p.m., my 11-year-old
primary 3 pupil of St. Paul’s Primary School,
Mafoluku, Oshodi, came back from school at about
after 1p.m.
“She went to our residence to change her clothes
so that she will come to stay with my wife in the
shop. She then came back at about 2p.m., panting,
with her dress rough.
“She told us that when she got home, she went to
the public toilet to urinate and that the accused
walked up to her, gripped her, removed her pant,
closed her mouth with his hand and forcefully
penetrated. She said he left her when he heard a
voice.”
In his argument, the prosecutor, Inspector Simeon
Imhonwa, informed the court that the defendant
should not be granted bail and that he must tell the
court his reason for the act.
The prosecutor further contended that the alleged
offence was punishable under Section 137 of the
Criminal Laws of Lagos State, 2011.
The matter has been adjourned till November 13,
2016.
