Court remands man for sexually assaulting 15-year-old girl

The Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court on Monday remanded a 34-year-old man, Ezekiel Bassey, in Kirikiri Correctional Centre for repeatedly assaulting a 15-year-old girl.

Mr Bassey, a visual artist who resides at 12 Ajasa Street, Onikan, Lagos, is charged with sexual assault.

The chief magistrate, Bola Osunsanmi, did not take Mr Bassey’s plea.

Ms Osunsanmi ordered that he be remanded until March 25, pending legal advice from the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP).

The prosecutor, ASP Raji Akeem, told the court that the offence was committed on October 30, 2023.

Mr Akeem said that Mr Bassey lured the 15-year-old girl to his house, molested and took a video of her.

He said the offence contravened section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
