Man, 32, Pleads Guilty To Defiling 4-year-old Girl In Lagos

A 32-year-old man, Michael Okon, on Friday in Lagos pleaded guilty to defiling a four-year-old girl before a Surulere Chief Magistrates’ Court.

“I am guilty of the offence,” he told the Chief Magistrate, Mrs Ipaye Nwachukwu.

Nwachukwu said since the accused had pleaded guilty to the charge the court had no choice than to sentence him.

She fixed May 22 for facts and sentence.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Sgt. Anthonia Osayande, told the court that the accused committed the offence at No. 8, Adepoju St.,Iyana-Ipaja, a Lagos suburb, on Feb. 2.

She said the accused, who lives in the same compound with the four-year-old, took her to a dark corner in the compound and defiled her.

“But a neighbour trailed him and caught him in the act.”

‎The offence contravened section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2011.
