MAN, 42, ARRESTED FOR INSERTING FINGER INTO GIRL, 12, PRIVATE PART
A 42-year old man, Chucks Onyebuchi, has landed in trouble in Lagos after he allegedly inserted his finger into the private part of a 12-year old girl in order to lure her into sex but it failed.
P.M.EXPRESS reports that the incident happened at Onafuwa Street off Otubu Road, Agege area of Lagos, where they reside.
Police sources said that the suspect, Onyebuchi, lured the victim to his apartment, inserted his finger into her private part in order to confuse her but the victim resisted being lured into sex and raised alarm, which attracted other neighbours and he was eventually caught.
He was reported to the Police operatives from Isokoko Division, who moved into action and arrested him for interrogation over the alleged dastardly act.
While being interrogated, he told the Police that he did not penetrate her while he admitted that he touched her private part in the process but she resisted.
The Police found him culpable and subsequently charged him before the Ogba Magistrates Court.
His plea was not taken after the prosecutor, Supol Ezekiel Ayorinde, asked the Court to refer the matter to the DPP for advice.
The Presiding Magistrate, Mrs. B.O. Osunsanmi, who did not grant him bail, ordered him to be remanded in custody.
The Court ordered the prosecutor to duplicate the file and send it to the DPP for advice.
The matter may likely be transferred to the High Court if the DPP’s advice finds Onyebuchi culpable and recommends his trial.
The matter was adjourned but due to the Covid-19 lockdown, the matter was unable to proceed for hearing.
