The accused assaulted the underage girl by putting his hand into her private part.

Adewole, who resides at No. 38, Apata Street, Shomolu, Lagos, was charged for indecent assault.

The police prosecutor, Simeon Imhonwa, told the court that the accused committed the offence on Aug. 25 at his residence.

He said the accused assaulted the underage girl by putting his hand into her private part.

“The accused fingered the minor (name upheld) and also threatened to kill her if she informs anyone,’’Imhonwa said.

She said the sureties must be gainfully employed and should provide evidence of tax payment to Lagos State Government and adjourned the case until May 30.
