Cleric Remanded Over Rape

A Badagry chief magistrates’ court, Lagos State, on Tuesday, remanded a 45-year-old cleric, Mr Sunday Adewoye, who allegedly raped a 22-year-old woman.

The Magistrate, Mr Patrick Adekomaiya, did not take the plea of Adewoye, saying he needed advice from the DPP and adjourned the case to June 3.

Earlier, the prosecutor, Insp Ayodele Adeosun, told the court that on April 17, at about 5pm on Joseph Dosu Way, Badagry, Adewoye had sexual intercourse with the woman without her consent in contravention of Sections 260 and 263 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
