For alleged incest, a court remands a Lagos lecturer
A lecturer at the former Lagos State University of Technology (LASPOTECH) has been detained in the Kirikiri Correctional Center after being accused of defiling his daughter, who is 10 years old.
The lecturer (names withheld), who has been charged with defiling a juvenile and sexual assault by penetration, was arraigned last Friday before Magistrate Bola Osunsanmi on a two-count charge.
The lecturer was detained, according to the Lagos State Domestic and Sexual Violence Agency (DSVA), as a result of a report from a Mandated Reporter over the claim that he was engaging in illicit sexual activity with his biological daughter.
The survivor’s mother also disclosed that her husband stopped having sexual relations with her in 2018 and that whenever she attempted to confront him about it, he always retaliated.
