An Ikeja magistrates’ court on Thursday remanded a 50-year-old pastor, Lawrence Omoniyi, in the Kirikiri Correctional Centre for allegedly defiling a teenage girl.
The Magistrate, Mrs Bola Osunsanmi, who did not take the defendant’s plea, adjourned the case to April 18, while awaiting the advice of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).
Earlier, the prosecutor, ASP Raji Akeem, told the court that the 15-year-old victim and the defendant resided in the same house.
The prosecutor alleged that the girl confided in one of her sisters that the defendant had sexually assaulted her in the last two years and threatened to kill her if she told anyone. (NAN).
