A 35-year-old businessman, Tizhe Ayuba, was on Monday brought before an Igbosere Magistrates’ Court, Lagos, for allegedly inserting his fingers into the private part of a six-year-old girl.

The prosecutor, Sgt. Peace Chukwudi, told the court that the accused committed the offence on May 8, at 5:00pm, at Aro Community, Lekki, Lagos.

She said that the accused unlawfully defiled the girl by fingering her private part.

The offence contravened Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

Davis adjourned the case until June 13 pending the DPP’s advice.
