A Badagry Chief Magistrates’ Court has remanded a 35-year-old man, Samuel Gbodogbe for allegedly raping a 67-year-old woman.

The Prosecutor, ASP Akpan Ikem, told the court that the accused committed the offences on Sept. 9, at about 3:00 pm at Okuju Ilado, Badagry.

Akpan stated that the accused had sexual intercourse with the victim without her consent.

He said, “The accused sexually penetrated with his penis the vagina of the 67-year-old woman without her consent.

“The accused did sexually touch the complainant and also conducted himself in a manner likely to cause a breach of the peace.’’

The Chief Magistrate, Mr Lazarus Hotepo, ordered that the accused be remanded in Badagry prison and adjourned the case until Oct. 15 for further hearing.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The offences contravened Sections 166(1), 168, 258 and 259 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State, 2015.
