Raped, Impregnated And Aborted!!! Man Docked For Defiling Teenage Virgin

A 36-year-old man, Sherif Afolabi who raped and impregnated a 16-year-old virgin is in the dock for procuring abortion for her.

The long arm of the law has caught up 36-year-old Sherif Afolabi, who allegedly raped a 16-year-old girl, got her pregnant and arranged for an abortion for her, as he has been dragged brought before an Apapa Magistrate's Court, to stand trial for his crimes.

The judge, Mrs. O.I. Adelaja, heard that when Afolabi defiled the teenager in December, 2013, at the Ilogbo, Ajangbadi area of Lagos, she was a virgin but in the process, she got pregnant.

It was also learnt that due to threats of physically harming her, the young girl kept mum about the act, but became confused when she noticed that she was pregnant a few months later.

When she told Afolabi about the development, he allegedly arranged with a quack doctor and aborted the pregnancy.
