This came as 22-year-old Oluwatudimi Folajimi has been charged before a Yaba Magistrate’s Court in Lagos for allegedly forging an identity card of the University of Lagos, UNILAG, to enable him write exams for a 400-level student of medicine.

On the rape case, the accused, who lives at Meiran area of Lagos State, was said to have called the victim to his room under the pretext of sending her on an errand and defiled her.

The suspect was arraigned by the police on a three-count charge of sexual assault, defilement and attempt to procure abortion.

However, when the charge was read to the accused before Chief Magistrate Tajudeen Elias, he pleaded not guilty.

The prosecutor, Sgt Jimah Iseghede, informed the court that the alleged offences were committed in May at the accused’s residence and contravened Sections 137, 145 and 259 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

  1. This is certainly not rape. The girl may be under 18 but physically matured . There is relationship here which may be inappropriate. The man should pay the dowry and take his wife home, period. Sweet 16 is not a baby according to HE Yerima, a senator of the federal republic and former gov. She knew what she was doing.
