The Presiding Magistrate in Ogba Magistrates Court, Lagos State, Mrs. E. Kubenije, has ordered the remand of randy Adewale Owoade in the Correctional Centre at Kirikiri Town, Lagos, for allegedly inserting his finger inside the private part of 15-year-old girl pending when the DPP’s report will be ready while directing the prosecutor to duplicate the file and send it to the DPP for advice.
A 15-year-old girl, who was allegedly employed by the management of Romeo and Juliet Bar in Ejigbo in Lagos State, had a nasty experience after a randy customer sexually assaulted her by inserting his finger inside her private part in public.
According to the P.M.EXPRESS report, the randy man, Adewale Owoade, was subsequently arrested for the alleged dastardly act on the victim, who is still a minor.
The incident happened at the popular bar located at NNPC Junction, Ejigbo area of Lagos, where the victim worked as customer service.
Though the alleged assault attracted condemnation against Owoade, but those who knew what happened wondered why an underaged girl should be working late at the hotel when the incident happened.
Police alleged that the suspect went to the place to drink and after gulping some bottles; he lured the girl to where he was sitting and inserted his finger into her private part.
The victim was said to have raised an alarm, which attracted the attention of the security guard, who then apprehended Owoade and handed him over to the Police in the area for prosecution.
The Police at Ejigbo Division then transferred the matter to the Gender Section of the Police Command for interrogation.
After thorough interrogation and having found Owoade culpable, the Police subsequently charged him before the Ogba Magistrates Court for the alleged offense.
The Court did not take his plea when he was arraigned following a motion moved by the Police prosecutor, DSP Kehinde Ajayi, asking the Court to refer the matter to the DPP for advice.
The matter was adjourned till 26th October 2022, for the report of the DPP to be available, which will determine if the matter will be transferred to the High Court or not over jurisdiction.
