The accused, who lives in the gatehouse of his employers’ compound at Plot 20/ 21, Fiyin Dammy Street, Magodo, Lagos, is facing a charge of rape.

Prosecutor Jimah Iseghede told the court that the accused committed the offence on September 3 at his employer’s residence.

According to Sgt. Iseghede, the accused forced himself on the girl and had canal knowledge of her.

“The victim narrated her ordeal to her friend and her mother was later informed.

“The accused was then apprehended by the police,” he said.

Haman, however, denied the charge.

The Chief Magistrate, Tajudeen Elias, adjourned the case to September 30 for ruling on the bail application.
