Court Remands Man For Abducting, Defiling 14-Year-Old

A Magistrate Court sitting in Badagry, Lagos State on Wednesday directed that 20-year-old Peter Ezekiel accused of abducting and defiling a 14-year-old girl, be held in a correctional facility.

New Telegraph reports that State Police Command charged Ezekiel, whose residence is unknown, with two counts of abduction and defilement.

Chief Magistrate Patrick Adekomaiya, who did not accept Ezekiel’s plea, ordered that he be held in a correctional facility until bail could be granted in a High Court.


Earlier, the Prosecution Counsel, Insp., informed the court that Ezekiel committed the offence sometime in December 2023, at the Bakery Area of Ashipa, Seme Border, Badagry, Lagos.

The offence, he stated, violated the requirements of sections 411, 269, 261, and 263 of the 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
