The defendant was arraigned on a four-count charge, bordering on unlawful and indecent assault, unlawful sexual intercourse, among others.

The prosecutor, Sgt. Kehinde Omisakin, had told the court that the offences were committed on May 1, at about 6. p.m., at Consolidated Hallmark Insurance PLC, Obanikoro Road, Lagos.

She said that the teenager, who was hawking kerosene, was unlawfully detained and assaulted by Eboh.

“He took her inside one of the office rooms and started squeezing and fondling her breasts before having sexual intercourse with her,” she said.

The offences contravened Sections 135, 144 and 172 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.

Magistrate A.T. Elias adjourned the case until May 24, for hearing and ruling on the bail application.
