An Ilorin Magistrates’ Court, on Thursday, ordered one Kposu Benjamin to be remanded in the Mondala Custodial Centre for allegedly raping a 17-year-old girl to a coma.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the defendant is facing one count of rape which, according to the Police Prosecutor, Inspector Abdullahi Sanni, contravenes Section 283 of Penal Code Law.

The Magistrate, A.I. Adeniyi, adjourned the matter till December 8, for further mention.

The prosecutor had told the court that the matter was reported at a divisional police headquarters by one Bamikaye Kayode, a staff member of the Illumination Security Company.

He said the matter was later transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department and referred to the Anti-Human Trafficking Women and Children Protection Unit.

Sanni added that the defendant, who was a security guard at Motis Table Water, forcefully had sexual intercourse with the girl.

He added that the victim fainted during the sexual intercourse before she was rushed to a medical centre at the Gaa Akanbi area of Ilorin, where she was resuscitated.

Sanni said an investigation further revealed that Benjamin penetrated the victim’s genitals with his fingers.

He said the medical report obtained from the medical centre showed that there was a whitish substance suspected to be the suspect’s sperm in the pubic hair of the victim.

The prosecutor added that the hymen of the victim was also not intact.
