Father sexually assaults his twin sons
One Jephath Ighodaro has been ordered to be kept behind the bars of the Kirkiri prisons after being arraigned in an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court on Monday for allegedly assaulting his twin under-aged sons sexually.
Chief Magistrate P. E Nwaka, who refused to take the plea of the accused, ordered the prosecutor to send a copy of the case file to the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), for advice.

Ighodaro, a resident of St. Augustine Street, Surulere, Lagos, is reportedly facing a one-count charge of sexual assault.
Meanwhile, prior to the order of the magistrate, the prosecutor, Insp. Christopher John, had told the court that the offence was committed between January and July 2018 at the accused residence.
The inspector said that the accused and his ex-wife, the mother of the twins, parted ways three years ago.
“The boys were taken away from their mother by the accused in January and they have been living with him since then.

“It was during the holiday that the boys were allowed to visit their mother and she suspected something was going on,” he said.

Speaking further, he said the children told their mother how their father sexually molested them.
The prosecutor said the offence contravened Section 261 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.
Nwaka adjourned the case until Sept. 3 for mention.
