A teenager, who claimed he was curious and had feelings to have sex, has landed in trouble in Lagos for attempting to satisfy his curiosity over sex.
He was allegedly caught while having sex with their neighbour’s 9-year old girl.
The incident happened at Onilewura Street in Ikotun area of Lagos where they reside.
It was gathered that the suspect told the police that he was curious, had feelings for sex, then lured the victim and slept with her.
He was reportedly caught while in the act and the victim revealed that he was the one that lured her into it.
The teenager (name withheld) was arrested by police officers attached to Ikotun Division and after interrogation the Police found him culpable.
He was later charged before Ogba Magistrate Court for defilement after he reportedly confessed to the act.
The Court did not take his plea after the prosecutor, Supol Benson Emerhi, told the Court that it was a case of defilement which was a capital offence and required the DPP’s advice.
The Presiding Magistrate, Mrs. O Sule-Amzat, then directed the prosecutor to duplicate the file and send to the DPP for advice.
The defendant was remanded in custody pending the outcome of the DPP’s report.
It was gathered that the defendant might be tried at the High Court if the DPP finds him culpable and recommends his trial for defilement as it was a serious offence which attracts several years of imprisonment if found guilty by the Court.
