An Ado-Ekiti Magistrates’ Court on Monday remanded one Abiodun Akomolafe, 40-year-old man, in prison over alleged rape of a five-year-old.
The accused, who has no fixed address, is standing trial on a charge of rape.
Sgt. Ayodele Afolabi, the prosecutor, told the court that the accused committed the offence on July 7 in Ado-Ekiti.
He said that the offence contravened Section 31 (2) of Child Rights Law of Ekiti State, 2012.
The prosecutor urged the court to keep the accused behind bars pending the receipt of legal advice from the office of Director of Public Prosecutions, DPPs.
The magistrate, Mrs Modupe Afeniforo, who rejected the plea of the accused, ordered that Akomolafe be remanded in prison and adjourned the case until August 13 for mention.
