A 56-year-old man, Taiwo Pata and his 23-year-old son, Josh Joseph, have been remanded for allegedly having canal knowledge of an unidentified 14-year-old girl in Lagos.

  While Pata is her father, Joseph is also the girls’ brother.

  The two were remanded following their arraignment before a Magistrate Court in Ogba Lagos on a two-count charge of defilement and having forceful canal knowledge of the teenage girl, yesterday.

  According to police prosecutor, Kenneth Ajayi, the two defendants had canal knowledge of the girl at Ojo Barracks, Ojo Local Government Area of Lagos State, where they reside.

  Ajayi also told the court that the girl suffered emotional trauma after the two defendants turned her into a sex slave.

  Although Magistrate A.O Ajibade did not take their plea, because the offence does not fall within her jurisdiction, she ordered that they be remanded in a correctional facility.

  However, Ajibade directed the case file be sent to Department of Public Prosecution (DPP) for legal advice.
