An Ikeja Chief Magistrate Court on Friday ordered that a 28- year-old man, Musa Muhammed, who allegedly defiled an 11-year-old girl, be remanded in Kirikiri Custodial Centre.

The police charged Muhammad, a trader who resides at 21, Wharf Road, Apapa, Lagos with defilement.

The Chief Magistrate, Ejiro Kubeinje, who did not take the plea of Mohammad, ordered the police to return the case file to the Lagos State Director of Public Prosecution for legal advice.

Kubeinje adjourned the case until Dec. 3 for legal advice.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Bisi Ogunleye, told the court that Mohammad committed the offense on June 7 at Apapa.

Ogunleye alleged that Mohammad dragged 11- year-old girl into his shop while she was on an errand.

The prosecution alleged that Muhammad threatened the victim not to tell anyone.

The offense, he said, contravened the provisions of Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
