The incident, according to the State Prosecution team, happened sometimes in 2019 in Ajegule, Ajeromi-Ifelodun local government area of Lagos.


Quoting judge Taiwo in parts; “The survivor testified that the defendant defiled her sometimes in 2018 and 2019. The defendant dragged her into his room and had sex with her. On the second occasion, she was bleeding but the defendant used a tissue paper to clean her up.
