Temitayo Bamiro, 35, was docked at an Ojo Magistrate’s Court in Lagos State on Monday for allegedly defiling his 13-year-old daughter.
The prosecutor, Simon Uche, previously informed the court that the defendant committed the crime on January 7 at the Iba New Site in Ojo, Lagos State.
According to the prosecutor, Bamiro sexually abused his daughter on a regular basis and repeatedly penetrated her anus without her consent.
He added that the offence contravened the Criminal Laws of Lagos State.
The suspect pleaded not guilty to the charge.
The presiding magistrate, Mr L.J.K. Layeni, referred the case file to the Directorate of Public Prosecution for legal advice, adjourned the case to February 22 for mention and ordered the remand of Bamiro at the Badagry Custodial Centre.
