An Ikeja Magistrates’ court on Thursday remanded one Amusat Ashiru, a bus driver who allegedly defiled his 12-year-old daughter in Lagos.
The 60-year-old father who resides at Orisunbare, Shasha, is being tried for defilement.
The Magistrate, Mrs B.O. Osunsanmi, who refused to take the plea of the accused, said he should be kept behind bars pending advice from the State Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
The Police Prosecutor, ASP Ezekiel Ayorinde, told the court that, the accused committed the offence sometime in May at his residence where he had canal knowledge of his daughter several times.
“The girl, who has been staying with his uncle since her parents separated, decided to live with her father.
“She moved into her father’s house three months ago and since that day, her father had turned her into a sex machine’’.
Ayorinde said the girl could no longer tolerate her father’s constant sexual demands, ran away from home and was begging people to house her in their homes.
“A good Samaritan, who met her on the road begging for where to sleep, interrogated her and she told her what her father has been doing to her.
“The woman reported the case to the police and the accused was arrested,” the prosecutor said.
The offence contravened Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015. The case was adjourned until Aug. 6 for mention.
