“The clinal presentation of child s*xual ab*se was quite evident. The perpetrator engaged the child in s*xual activity when she was seven years old, on two occasions. On the 19th of April 2021, he s*xually hara*sed her, touching her body. He told her: ‘I touched you some years back, you are so grown, so developed. Do you have a boyfriend? We have some unfinished business. These are the clinical presentations of child s*xual ab*se. These are the dynamics of child s*xual abuse and the modus operandi of perpetrators – inculcation of secrecy, intimidation, thr*at or coercion,” she said.
“He asked the child if he should remove his p*nis and asked her to sit on his lap. He told her not to tell anybody. The perpetrator also inserted his car key into her v*gina and asked her not to tell anyone,” Olabisi Ajayi-Kayode added
Justice Oluwatoyin adjourned the trial to October 20 and 21 for further hearing. Recall that Baba Ijesha was on June 16 arraigned before a Chief Magistrates’ Court in Yaba, Lagos State for alleged s*xual a*sault and attempted r*pe of a minor.
