42-year-old Solomon Odo allegedly raped his co-tenant’s 9 year-old child, and he was judged at the Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.
He faces a two-count charge of child defilement and rape.
Odo allegedly defiled the girl by luring her to run an errand for him. The report says he invited her in when she came back, locked the door and had sex with her, leaving her severely bruised.
He was arrested after the minor’s mother reported the case to the police.
