19-year-old boy remanded in prison for raping blind 80-year-old woman

A Yaba chief magistrate's court in Lagos, yesterday, remanded a teenager, Avoseh Satingo in prison custody, in connection to the alleged rape of an 80-year-old blind woman. The magistrate says he has a case to answer.

Magistrate Yewande Aje-Afunwa made this known following advice by the Lagos State Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP). She said the DPP advised that a prima facie case had been established against 19-year-old Satingo.

The Police had on March 24 charged the teenager with raping an octogenarian on her bed. The prosecutor, ASP Godwin Anyanwu, told the court that the accused, who resides at the Cele Church Bus Stop, Bilewu Oshoffa area, Agbovipe village, Badagry, raped the grandmother in her room.

According to him, Satingo committed the offence on.February 17 at 1p.m. He said: "Satingo took advantage of the condition of the blind complainant and raped her on her bed.

"He was apprehended by members of the community who sighted him coming out of his victim's room as she cried for help."

He said the offence contravened Sections 258 and 259 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

The court had, in March, adjourned the case pending the DPP's advice.
