According to Vanguard, Sodiq Sulaimon on June 4 appeared before Ikeja High Court over the charge of manslaughter.
The suspect is accused of “procuring abortion for her”. The man, however, pleaded not guilty.
The case was reported to the police by one Femi Adegboyega who said that the 20-year-old father of the baby had given his niece drugs to abort pregnancy.
A witness, Sergeant Elizabeth Osikanlu, said that the defendant initially did not deny having sexual relationships with the teenager sometime in October 2012 and giving her two tablets to prevent pregnancy.
In another part of the country a born child was sold by his own father for N350,000. The upcoming Nollywood actor, who committed the crime, made a chilling confession:
“Initially, I wanted to use my son as a collateral to get a loan but Emmanuel said that outright sale will be the best.”
