Court Orders Remand of A 30-Year-Old Man Over Defiling of 11-Year-Old

An Edo State High Court sitting in Benin City has ordered the remand of a 30-year-old man, Osasumwen Vincent, over allegedly defiling an 11-year-old girl.

The suspect was arraigned on one-count charge of rape punishable under Section (1) of the Edo State Violence Against Persons (Prohibition) Law

The prosecutor, Mrs Hamma Iyamu, told the court that the suspect sometime in October, 2022, at the Ohovbe Quarters in Benin, raped the girl.

The defendant pleaded not guilty, but Justice Efe Ikponmwonba ordered his remand and adjourned the case to June 10.
