A Family Court sitting in Iyaganku in Ibadan on Friday ordered that a 20-year-old man, Ogbonna Ale, be remanded in a correction centre for allegedly defiling a six-year-old neighbor’s daughter.
The police charged Ale with defilement.
The Chief Magistrate, Mrs P. O. Adetuyibi, who did not take the plea of Ale due to want in jurisdiction ordered his remand in Abolongo Correctional facility, Oyo Town.
Adetuyibi said his remand is pending; legal advice from the Oyo State Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).
She adjourned the matter until Aug. 3, for mention.
The Prosecution Counsel, Insp Oluwakemi Arowosaye, told the court that Ogbonna defiled the six-year-old girl on April 23, at about 7 p.m.
Arowosaye said the offence contravened the provisions of Section 34 of the Oyo State Child Rights Law of 2006.(NAN)
