28 year-old teacher, Idowu Daniel, was on Monday remanded in prison by an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court for allegedly defiling a 17-year-old secondary school student.
Chief Magistrate Olufunke Sule-Amzat, who did not take the defendant’s plea, ordered that he should be remanded in Kirikiri Prisons.
She ordered the police to send the case file to the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for advice.
The defendant, who lives at Abule-Egba, Lagos, is facing a charge of defilement.
Prosecuting Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Benson Emuerhi told the court that the defendant on June 27 at 9:25am unlawfully had carnal knowledge of his student in the Biology Laboratory at Anastasia Comprehensive College, Abule-Egba, Ikeja.
“The teacher lured the student to the Biology lab and forcefully had s*xual intercourse with her,” the prosecutor alleged.
According to him, the offence contravenes Section 137 of the Criminal Laws of Lagos State 2015.
The case continues on October 21.
