Muslim Cleric, 43, Rapes 5-year-old Girl Inside Mosque In Nigeria

An Islamic Cleric, Abdulsalam Salaudeen, was on Monday remanded by an Ikeja Sexual Offenses and Domestic Violence Court for supposedly assaulting a five-year-old young lady in a mosque.

Equity Abiola Soladoye, who obliged the investigator's solicitation for the remand, deferred the case until October 14 for preliminary.

Mr. Salaudeen, 43, is being gone after for supposedly polluting the youngster, who was under his tutelage.

The investigator, T. Olanrewaju-Dawodu, told the court that Mr. Salaudeen submitted the offense on December 22, 2018, at the premises of Olorunbabe Mosque at No. 15, Palace Road, Igando, Lagos.

Ms. Olanrewaju-Dawodu said that Mr. Salaudeen, prominently called Alfa, was found assaulting the tyke by means of the recording of a shrouded camera which was introduced inside the premises of the mosque by suspicious people.

The litigant, dwelling at No. 16, Awoyemi St., Ikotun, Lagos, in any case, argued not liable to the charge.

The examiner said the offense contradicted Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.
