A 16-year-old teenager who killed a 51-year-old man who allegedly tried to rape her was arraigned on Tuesday, March 24 at the Ebute Meta Magistrate Court in Lagos State's Yaba city.

The Senior Secondary School (SSS) 3 pupil was arraigned on a one-count charge of killing one Babatunde Ishola by stabbing him with a knife on March 7, 2020 at Nwadolu Lane, Aboru in the state's Alimosho district.

Chief Magistrate Adedayo did not take the teenager's plea which she remitted to the Idi-Araba Correctional Home For Children.

Police were directed to send a duplicate copy of the case file to the Public Prosecutions Directorate (DPP) for guidance, until the case was adjourned until April 27.

It should be recalled that the spokesperson for Lagos Police, Elkana Bala, reported the incident a few days earlier, where he had said,

“The body was evacuated to the hospital for post-mortem examination. The suspect was arrested and the knife she used in stabbing the deceased person was recovered.

“In her statement, the suspect said the deceased person, who is her father’s friend, invited her to his house to assist him in fetching water, as he lives alone. She said she has always been helping him with the house chores but that while she was helping out with the water on Saturday, he attempted raping her. Then she picked a knife from the room and stabbed.

“The suspect was taken to hospital for medical and forensic examination. The Commissioner of Police Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu, has ordered the immediate transfer of the case to the State Criminal Investigation Department Yaba for discreet investigation.”
