OSOGBO — A 22 year old man, Moyinoluwa Tosin has been ordered by an Osogbo Magistrate court to be remanded in Ilesha prison for allegedly abducting and raping a 15 year old girl, Tope Adeniyi.

The Police prosecutor, Mr. Solomon Oladele, an Inspector told the court presided over by Magistrate Olusola Aluko that the accused person and others who now at large, conspired to abduct the 15-year-old girl, while Moyinoluwa allegedly defiled her at Egbatedo area of Osogbo.

He said the offences allegedly committed by the accused person were contrary to and punishable under sections 516, 362, 221 and 360 of the Criminal Code, Cap 34 Vol. 11 laws of Osun State of Nigeria, 2003.

The accused told the court that the victim often slept in his house, adding that there was no way he could have raped his girl friend who had on many occasions slept with him. He therefore pleaded not guilty to all the charges.

Counsel to the accused person, Mr. Daniel Agbara prayed the court to grant the accused person bail, but the court declined the plea and asked him to make a formal application.

The case was adjourned till 20th June, 2013.
