Father arraigned for raping three daughters

For allegedly raping his three daughters, a 48-year-old man, Micheal Ogbar, on Tuesday appeared before an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court.

The Chief Magistrate, Mr Tajudeen Elias, refused to hear his plea and remanded him in kirikiri prisons.

Elias said the court had no jurisdiction over the case and therefore transferred the matter to Apapa Magistrates’ Court.

The accused, who lives at Oke-Ogba Street, Badagry, a suburb of Lagos, is facing two counts of defilement and rape.

The Prosecutor, Sgt. Rafael Donny, told the court that the offences were committed between January and May at the accused’s residence.

Donny said that the accused raped his two daughters and defiled the third daughter.

“The accused sexually abused his 24, 20 and 10 year-old daughters,” he said.

The offences contravened sections 137 and 259 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.
