An Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court in Lagos on Friday ordered the remand of a 37-year-old Veronica Vincent, who allegedly assaulted a 21-month-old baby.

Vincent’s remand will be pending the legal advice from the Director of Public Prosecutions.

The Chief Magistrate, Olufunke Sule-Amzat, ordered that the defendant to be remanded in Kirikiri Prison as the court did not take the plea of the defendant.

The defendant, who lives at No. 33, Ararait Street by Egbeda Bus Stop, Idimu, a Lagos suburb, is charged with “unlawful indecent sexual assault”.

Sule-Amzat adjourned the case until April 22.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Insp. Benson Emuerhi, had told the court that the defendant committed the offence on February 12 at 6.00 p.m. at her residence.

Emuerhi alleged that the defendant sexually assaulted the victim, a one-year-nine months-old girl (name withheld), that was placed in her care.

He alleged that the victim was sexually assaulted through her vagina and anus in the premises of the day care centre of the defendant.

The prosecutor told the court that the case was reported to the police at Idimu Police Divisional Station by the victim’s mother.

Emuerhi told the court that the defendant was arrested by the police and was later transferred to the Gender Section, Lagos Police Command, Ikeja, for further investigation.

The offence, he said, contravened the provisions of Section 261 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State 2015.
