A Magistrates’ Court sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State has ordered the remand of a 54-year-old man, Sunny Gogo in prison custody for allegedly raping a 6-year-old girl.
The court gave the order on Thursday, September 17.
It was gathered that the incident happened at the Redeemers Household Greater Glory Ministry in Ozuboko, Abuloma in Port Harcourt on August 31, 2020. The victim is said to be an orphan.
Though the suspect pleaded not guilty to the charges, the court adjourned the case to the 7th October 2020 for continuation of hearing.
Chief magistrate Amaka Amanze turned down bail application for the accused despite his plea.
She held that the filling was defective since the victim is a child and urged the legal counsel to the accused to allow the prosecutor and the FIDA to agree on proper charges.
