The accused is standing trial for indecent treatment of a child.

He, however, entered a plea of `not guilty.’

Ogu said the accused called the minor into his room, removed her pants and fingered her.

“The victim’s mother got to know when there was some discharges in her private part and took her to the hospital.

“The victim told her mother that it was `uncle’ that touched her private part.”

The offence contravened Section 135 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011 and carries a penalty of seven years imprisonment.

The Chief Magistrate, Mrs Taiwo Akanni, granted the accused bail in the sum of N200,000 with two sureties in like sum and adjourned the case to Feb. 20 for mention.
