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.

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