An Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday remanded a 37-year-old man, Sunday Stephen, in Kirikiri Correctional Service for allegedly raping his 16-year-old daughter.

The Chief Magistrate, Mr P.E. Nwaka, who did not take the plea of Stephen ordered that the case file be sent to the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) for advice.

Nwaka adjourned the case until Feb. 13, for mention.

Stephen, who resides at No.14, Adeniyi St., Alakuko, a suburb of Lagos, is facing a count charge of rape.
