A police officer, Insp Olakunle Oyedeji, on Tuesday told an Ikeja Domestic Violence and Sexual Offences Court how a pastor, Israel Phillip, allegedly defiled his neighbour’s 11-year-old daughter.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Phillip is facing a two-count charge of defilement and sexual assault by penetration.
Oyedej, while being led in evidence by the state counsel, Mr Babajide Boye and Ms Inumidun Solarin, said he received the case of an alleged defilement on Sept. 22, 2019 at the Gender Section, Police Command in Ikeja.
The witness said that the case was transferred from Ketu Division by one Sgt. Omowumi, together with the survivor, defendant and the complainant’s files.
