A Magistrates’ Court in Ibadan, on Friday, ordered that one Oluwagbenga Ogunjobi, a 44-year-old man who allegedly raped and impregnated a 19-year-old physically challenged girl, be remanded in a correctional centre.

Magistrate Esther Idowu, who did not take the plea of Ogunjobi, ordered that he should be remanded in Oba Correctional Centre, pending legal advice from the Directorate of Public Prosecutions.

The Prosecution Counsel, Mr. Adekunle Opeyemi, while presenting the case told the court that Ogunjobi committed the offence on April 15 at Ibafo, Obafemi Owode area of Ogun State.

Opayemi alleged that Ogunjobi, a co-tenant with the victim, took advantage of her condition, and raped her.

According to him, the offence contravened the provisions of sections 357 and 358 of the Criminal Law of Ogun, 2006.
