Primary 3 Girl in Lagos Gets Pregnant after being Raped

Magistrates’ Court; Apapa
Tope Akintade; a 27 year old young man has being arrested by the police with the crime of impregnating a primary 3 (three) pupil after allegedly rapping her. Akintade and the poor pupil share the same compound on Baale Street, Agboju, Kuje in the Amuwo area of Lagos State. 

According to PUNCH Metro, the 13-year-old victim was outside washing plates in the afternoon, sometime in November, when Akintade, who hails from the Idanre Local Government Area, Ondo State, lured her to his room and forcefully had sex with her. the girl's aunt, who preferred to be anonymous because of the nature of the incident, had earlier warned the suspect to stay away from her niece when the girl complained that he was “playing rough play” with her. 

Neither the aunt nor other lodgers of the compound were around on the fateful day to intervene in the act as Akintade reportedly pressure the minor into three rounds of sexual romp. It was gathered that the act, which the minor had kept secret, became apparent when she began to exhibit some symptoms usually shown by pregnant women. She was said to have been taken to a hospital where a test conducted on her revealed that she was three months pregnant. 

Akintade was eventually arrested by police officials attached to the Satellite Police Division and charged with rape. PUNCH Metro was told that he had confessed to the crime in a statement made to the police. A prosecutor, Olusoji Ojaokomo, arraigned him before an Apapa Magistrate’s Court on two counts of rape. The charge read, “That you, Tope Akintade, 27, on Baale Street, Agboju, Satellite Town, Kunje, Amuwo, Lagos, in the Apapa Magisterial District, did defile one Beatrice(pseudonym name for the girl) by having canal knowledge of her and thereby committed an offence punishable under Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2011.

 “That you, Tope Akintade, did indecently assault Beatrice by touching her private parts and thereby committed an offence punishable under Section 134 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2011.” The accused, however, pleaded not guilty before the magistrate, Mrs. O.I. Adelaja, who admitted him to bail in the sum of N50,000, with two sureties in like sum. “The sureties must tender to the court evidence of tax payment and their residential addresses for verification,” she added. She adjourned the case till March 23, 2015 for mention.
