A young man in Lagos has been arrested and charged after reports that he raped an elderly woman.
19-year-old Avoseh Satingo is said to have taken advantage of the unnamed 80-year-old woman who is blind.
Satingo has been remanded in prison on the orders of a Yaba Magistrate Court after it was alleged that he raped the grandmother on her bed.
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.”
