Chief Magistrate K.O. Ogundare, who did not take the plea of Olayiwola, ordered that he should be kept in Kirikiri Correctional Centre, pending advice from the Lagos State Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).

Ogundare had ordered the police to duplicate and return the case file to the DPP’s office.

He adjourned the case until Feb. 26 for mention.

Olayiwola, who resides at No. 13 Omowunmi St., Mushin, Lagos, is charged with three counts of breach of peace, assault and defilement.

Earlier the prosecutor, Insp. Edet Akadu told the court that the defendant committed the offence on Sept. 4, 2019, at his residence.

Akadu alleged that Olayiwola lured the girl into his room and defiled her.
