Sad Story of How Landlord & Tenant Turned A Teenage Girl into S*x Slave

The police on Tuesday brought before a Lagos Magistrate’s Court in Ikeja a 51-year-old landlord, Mr, Ishola Idris, and his 35yrs old tenant, Linus Okonkwo, for "defiling" a 13yrs old housemaid.

The housemaid was said to be living with her guardian on Celestial Road, Igando, Lagos, where the incident happened. Both Idris and Okonkwo were arraigned on two counts bordering on child defilement and s*xual assault.

The landlord allegedly deflowered the girl, ‘sodomised’ her and turned her to a intimacy gadget. He also allegedly threatened to kill the girl if she ever told anybody. It was learnt that the minor confessed under pressure when blood was spotted in her anus.

The two counts preferred against the defendants read: 
“That you, Ishola Idris, sometime in January 2017, on Celestial Road, Igando, Lagos, in the Lagos Magisterial District, did unlawfully defile one 13-year-old child (name withheld) by having s*xual inter-course with her.

"That you, Linux Okonkwo, sometime in March 2017, on Celestial Road, Igando, Lagos, in the Lagos Magisterial District, did unlawfully s*xually assault one 13-year-old by penetrating into her private parts.”

They both pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The Magistrate, Bolanle Osunsanmi, granted each of them bail in the sum of N500,000 with two sureties each in like sum. The matter was adjourned till October 12, 2017 for trial.
