Man jailed for the alleged rape of his 20-year-old neighbour in Lagos

A 24-year-old man has been remanded for allegedly having his way and raping his neighbour in Lagos State.

The rapist, identified as Ebuka Ibe, was said to have had unlawful carnal knowledge with his neighbour at his residence, 16, Eyitayo St., Ajao Estate, Lagos.

He was sent to Kirikiri Correctional Centre, on Tuesday, by a Magistrate court in Ikeja, over the criminal act.

F. D Hughes, the Magistrate, rejected Ibe’s plea due to lack of jurisdiction.

The case has been adjourned until April 17 to seek legal advice from the Director of Public Prosecution.

According to Inspector Samuel Mishozunnu, the prosecutor, the alleged offence took place on February 18 at the defendant’s residence.

According to Mishozunnu, he allegedly raped his 20-year-old neighbour while she was asleep.

Ibe reportedly entered the victim’s bed during the night and committed the act of rape, while concerned neighbours urgently cried for help.

The crimes committed went against the regulations outlined in Section 260 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015. (NAN)
