A 33-year-old man, Ibrahim Ahmed, was on Friday arraigned in an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos for allegedly defiling two male minors.
The accused, a painter, who resides at 17, Akinjobi St., Moricas, Agege, a suburb of Lagos, was charged with sexual assault.
The Prosecutor, Insp Clifford Ogu, told the court that the offences were committed between March and April at Moricas, Agege.
Ogu said that the accused lured the boys, aged 13 and 11 years, into his workshop on two different occasions and defiled them through their anus.
“The sister to one of the boys caught the duo while they were attempting to practice the act.
“When she asked them where they learnt it, they said the accused had been engaged in the act with them for more than a month now,” he said.
Ogu said that the case was reported to the police and the accused was apprehended.
The offence, he said, contravened Section 261 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.
The Chief Magistrate, Mrs Taiwo Akanni, granted the accused bail in the sum of N250,000 with two sureties in like sum.
