Police Arraign Four For Defiling Two Underaged Sisters

 

Four employees of a Lagos based company, Kazmus Nigeria Limited, were today arraigned at an Ikeja Domestic Violence and Sexual Offences Court for defiling the three year-old and five year-old daughters of their colleague.

The employees are: Ojo Taiye, 35, a driver, John Mohasan, 24, a security guard, Peter Arabo, 33, a tiler and Adenekan Adedeji, 40, a driver.

The defendants pleaded not guilty to a three-count charge of defilement and sexual assault by penetration.

According to the State Prosecutor, Ms I. Solarin, the employees committed the offences in November 2015 at the company premises located at Fagba-Iju Road,  Agege, Lagos.

“The defendants on different occasions defiled the sisters (names withheld) by having sexual intercourse with them.

“They were also at different occasions sexually assaulted the older sister, who is five-years old by penetrating her mouth with their penises,” Solarin said.

According to court documents, the children who are nursery and primary school pupils spent time at their father’s workplace after school hours.

The children, were on several occasions, left in the company of the defendants and other members of staff to babysit them while their father (name withheld) worked.

It was when the children were left alone with the defendants that the defilements allegedly took place.

The three-year old sibling, experiencing pains in her private part, was first to disclose that she was defiled to her father.

The father, on further enquiries, found out that his older daughter was also defiled by his colleagues.

According to the prosecution, the offences violated Sections 137 and 259 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2011.

Justice Sybil Nwaka ordered that the defendants be remanded in prison custody.

She adjourned the case until April 27 for trial.
