Bricklayer held for defiling toddler

The parents of an 18-month-old baby have accused a bricklayer of defiling their toddler.

47-year-old Emmamuel Magbatie   allegedly defiled the baby girl (names withheld) on Adebayo Street, Owutu, in Ikorodu.

Magbatie, however, denied the allegation when he was arraigned before an Ikeja magistrate’s court.

He was granted a N500,000 bail, though his alleged offence is punishable under section 259 Criminal Code of Lagos State 2011.

The matter was adjourned till September 22.
