Two men out of the five tenants who reportedly defiled their deceased landlord’s 12-year-old daughter and got her pregnant, were arraigned before an Lagos State High Court in Igbosere on Monday. 

Speaking at the trial of two of the suspects, 30-year-old Shaibu Isiaka and 34-year-old John Obah who were brought by the police before a Yaba Magistrates’ Court in 2014 on a two-count charge of conspiracy and unlawful sexual intercourse, the prosecution witness, Sergeant Afeez Idowu, who was led in evidence by prosecution counsel Mr Adebayo Haroun, told Justice Sedoten Ogunsanya,  that the girl in company of her mother identified Isiaka and Obah among the five men who defiled her on separate occasions.

Idowu said:

“The girl said that whenever she was sent to buy things like sweet, the first defendant Isiaka, usually asked her to keep the change and that whenever her mother was not around, the first defendant would have sexual intercourse with her on her mother’s matrimonial bed.
