A couple, Juliet and Boniface, who allegedly aided their son, Ebuka Nwobodo, to defile a minor, were, on Wednesday, brought before an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos.
The Prosecutor, Insp Kehinde Olatunde, had told the court that the defendants committed the offences in 2016, at No. 7, Odunsi St., Bariga.
He said that when the complainant informed Mr and Mrs Nwobodo about what their son was doing to her, they shut her up and threatened to kill her if she ever mentioned it to anyone.
Olatunde said it was when the complainant took her diary where she had documented all the alleged acts to school that her teacher read it and reported the matter to the school authorities.
According to him, the offences contravene Sections 137 and 411 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
Delivering Judgment, the Chief Magistrate, Mrs A. A. Oshoniyi, granted the defendants bail in the sum of N250,000, with two sureties each in like sum.
