The defendant, whose address was not provided, is facing a charge of unlawful sexual assault.

He, however, pleaded not guilty.

Earlier, the prosecutor, ASP Peter Nwangwu, told the court that the defendant committed the offence in March at Airport Estate, Isheri, Lagos. (NAN)

Nwangwu said that the defendant sexually assaulted his daughter (name withheld) by inserting his finger into her private part.

He said the defendant was arrested by the police after the case was reported.

He said the offence contravened Section 261 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015 (Revised). It prescribes a three-year jail term for any offender.
