Man arrested for allegedly sleeping with his underaged daughters in Lagos

The police in Lagos state have arrested and arraigned a 40-year old man, Terry Ikechukwu Iheme, for allegedly sleeping with his two under aged daughters in his home located at Igbo-olomu in Agric area of Ikorodu Lagos.



The suspect who was a senior driver with a company known as Hi-Tech construction company in Lagos, was arrested while in church by men of the Owutu Police Division on January 12th.



Upon his arrest, Iheme was interrogated and was found culpable. He was then charged before the Ikorodu Magistrate Court 1, Ita Elewa, for defilement which attracts life imprisonment if found guilty over the alleged offence.



However, his plea was not taken after the prosecutor, Inspector John, asked the Court to refer the matter to the DPP for advice because the victims were still minors and the offence was capital in nature.



The Presiding Magistrate, Mrs. F.A. Afeez, ordered the defendant to be remanded in prison custody without an option of bail.


The Court also directed the prosecutor to duplicate the file and send to the DPP for advice.



The Magistrate then adjourned the matter till 19th February, 2020.
