Lagos businessman faces life imprisonment for raping three underage daughters
An Ikeja Magistrates Court sitting on Wednesday remanded a 43-year-old businessman, Emeka Orisakwe, for defiling his three daughters.
The police charged Orisakwe, who resides at Maza Maza, Amuwo-Odofin, with sexual assault on his three daughters, aged eight, six, and four.
The Magistrate, Ejiro Kubeinje, who did not take Orisakwe’s plea, ordered that he be remanded in Kirikiri prison.
Kubeinje directed the police to send the case file to the state’s Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for advice.
She adjourned the case until November 2 for DPP advice.
The prosecution counsel, Bisi Ogunleye, told the court that the defendant committed the offence between May and July at his residence.
He added that Mr Orisakwe sexually assaulted his three daughters, aged eight, six, and four.
The prosecution said medical reports also showed that the children had been defiled.
The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of Section 261 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
The section attracts life imprisonment for sexual penetration through the vagina.
