Teenager arrested for raping minor


An Osun Magistrates’ Court in Ile-Ife on Wednesday remanded a 19-year-old boy, Alabi Princewill for allegedly raping a 13-year-old girl.

The Prosecutor, Sgt. Bassey Asukwo, told the court that the accused conspired with one Seye Akinyoade who recorded the incident on video.

Asukwo stated that the accused forcefully had carnal knowledge of the minor without her consent.

He said, ‘’during the sexual intercourse, one Seye Akinyoade now at large recorded the incident on video.

‘’The case was reported to the police and the suspects were arrested immediately.’’

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to a two-count charge of rape and indecent assault.

The Defence Counsel, Mr Ben Adirieje, applied for the bail of the accused in the most liberal term, adding that the accused would not jump bail, but would produce substantial sureties.

Magistrate A. A. Olowolagba did not grant the bail of the accused but ordered for his remand in prison custody.

Olowolagba adjourned the case until Oct 12, for ruling on the bail application.

The offence contravened section 360 and 516 of the Criminal Code laws of Osun, 2002.
