An Ikeja Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday August 25, 2021, ordered that a 44-year-old trader, Anthony Odita, be remanded in a correctional centre for allegedly sexually assaulting his two daughters.
The police charged Odita, who resides in Igbogbo, Ikorodu, Lagos State, with sexual assault. Magistrate O.A Layinka, who did not take the plea of Odita, ordered that he should be remanded in Kirikri Correctional Centre.
Layinka, however, directed the police to send the case file to the state Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for advice. She adjourned the case until Dec. 6 for DPP’s advice.
Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, Insp Lucky Ihiehie said Odita committed the offence in July at his residence. He said that the defendant sexually assaulted his two daughters, aged twelve and nine. The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of Sections 261 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
