Ogu said the accused was on his way to clean a church premises when he sighted the girl, who was at the back of her school.

“The girl went to urinate at the back of her school when the accused called her and defiled her.

“It was one of the teachers in the classroom who sighted the accused, but before she got there, the girl had been defiled,’’ he said.

The offence contravened Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty.
