For allegedly defiling his 11-year-old daughter, a 46-year-old businessman, Oghenetega Orhewere, was on Thursday hauled up before an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court.

Orhewere, who resides at Omuwa Close, Tedi, Muwo Ojo, a Lagos suburb, is facing a charge of defilement.

The accused, however, pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Ogu said the accused told his 11-year-old daughter to go the bathroom to bathe after returning from school.

“The accused shut the door after her, defiled her and used a white handkerchief to clean the blood stains.”
