An Ikeja Domestic Violence and Sexual Offences Court on Wednesday remanded a man, Babatunde Fashogbon, for allegedly raping a 21-year-old girl in a school library.

Justice Abiola Soladoye remanded the defendant in the Kirikiri Correctional Centre pending the commencement of his trial.

Soladoye adjourned the case until Jan. 16, 2023 for trial.

The defendant is facing a three-count charge of rape, sexual assault and sexual assault by penetration.

He, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The state prosecutor, Ms Abimbola Abolade, sought for trial date following the not guilty plea of the defendant.

Abolade alleged the defendant raped the 21-year-old girl by having unlawful sexual intercourse with her.

Abolade told the court that the defendant committed the offences on March 21, during school hour in the library of Opebi Secondary School, Ikeja.

The prosecutor submitted that the defendant sexually assaulted the survivor by fondling her breast and inserting his penis into her mouth.

The defence counsel, Mr Pedro Lawal (SAN), pleaded with the court for quick trial date in the interest of justice.

According to the prosecutor, the alleged offences violated Sections 260, 261 and 263 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State, 2015.
