A man, who has been identified simply as Doyin Jibowu, has been dragged before the Surulere Magistrates’ Court, for allegedly defiling a holymosque, by having unholy sex with a 25-year old woman near the Muslims place of worship.
The accused, who has refused to divulge his residential address, is facing a four-count charge of conspiracy, stealing, indecent act and multiple assault. Although he pleaded ‘not guilty’ to the four charges, the prosecutor, CPL. Merve Mberev, narrated to the court how he (the accused), had on October 16 at about 1pm, indecently assaulted the woman (names withheld), near a mosque at Ayilara Street, Surulere, Lagos.
Mr. Mberev also added that Doyin was so engrossed in the sexual act, that he assaulted one Oliver Mba, who attempted to rescue the victim from his grip. As if that wasn’t enough, the prosecutor also slammed the accused for stealing a N10,000 crate of beer from the complainant. All offences contravened Sections 134(1), 170, 285(1) and 409 of the Criminal Code, Laws ofLagos State, 2011.
However, after listening to both parties, the Magistrate M.A. Ladipo granted the accused a N100,000 bail, with two sureties in like sum. Thus, the suit was adjourned to November 12 for further hearing
