An Ikeja Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday ordered a 35-year-old man, Abeeb Oluwa, to be remanded over alleged defilement of an eight-year-old girl.

The Magistrate, Mrs Olufunke Sule-Amzat, ordered that the defendant be kept at the Kirikiri Custodial Centre pending advice from the Lagos State director of public prosecutions.

Sule-Amzat, who did not take the plea of the defendant, adjourned the case until Feb. 27 for mention.
