A 27-year-old man, Mark Afeare, was on Tuesday remanded in prison by an Igbosere Magistrates’ Court, Lagos for allegedly raping a 17-year-old girl.

Afeare, whose address was not provided in court, is standing trial on a three-count charge bordering on rape.

His plea was not taken by the court.

The Magistrate, Mrs K.O. Doja-Ojo, ordered that the case file should be duplicated and sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions for legal advice.

Doja-Ojo, however, adjourned the case until July 10 for mention.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Insp. Peace Chukwudi, told the court that the defendant committed the offences on June 3 at about 4.00p.m. at Seaside Estate, Badore Road, Ajah in Lagos.

Chukwudi said that the defendant abducted the 17-year-old girl from her mother’s shop with the intent of having sexual intercourse with her.

“The defendant abducted the girl from her mother’s shop, had sexual intercourse with the girl without the girl’s consent,” Chukwudi told the court.

According to the prosecutor, the offences contravened Sections 137, 261 and 268 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
