For allegedly defiling his friend’s 10-year-old daughter, Godwin Itta, was on Monday docked at an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court.

Itta, a factory worker who resides at Balogun Street, Orile Agege, a suburb of Lagos, is facing a charge of defilement.

The prosecutor, Sgt. Rafael Donny, told the court that Itta committed the offence on October 22 at Jibowu Street, Orile Agege during a visit to his friend’s house.

He said, “The victim, a 10-year-old girl, was the only person the accused met at home.

“The accused pulled the girl on the floor and defiled her.”
The offence contravened Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
