A man has landed in trouble after he allegedly raped an underage girl, resulting in a pregnancy.
The man, Agboola Alabi, 24, reportedly lured the 15-year-old girl to his friend’s apartment at Akilo area of Lagos, where he had sex with her.
The lid was blown off Agboola’s deed after the girl’s mother noticed she was unusually getting bigger.
“The girl’s mother discovered that she was growing bigger and decided to take her to hospital for a medical check-up.
“It was at the hospital that she was confirmed to be pregnant.
“When the victim was asked who was responsible for her pregnancy, she said it was Alabi, who raped her sometime in December.
“The case was reported at the police station and the accused was arrested for questioning,’’ said a police prosecutor, Insp. Christopher John during Agboola’s arraignment before an Ikeja Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday.
The prosecutor further said the alleged offence was committed last December, 2017.
