Earlier, the prosecutor, ASP Ezekiel Ayorinde, told the court that the defendant committed the offence between January and February at his residence.

Ayorinde said that the defendant had carnal knowledge of the 14-year-old girl which resulted into pregnancy.

“The defendant severally had sexual intercourse with the girl who came to spend holiday with his family.

“On returning to her parents, after spending holiday with Paul, the girl’s mother discovered that she was pregnant.

“When her mother queried her, the victim told her that the defendant made love to her on several occasions,” he said.

The prosecutor said the victim’s mother reported the case and the defendant was arrested.

According to him, the offence violated Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015. The section prescribes life imprisonment for defilement.

The case was adjourned until Aug.7 for mention (NAN).
