A housewife, Uzioma, and her husband Ezechima Patrick, who reside at no 14, iyajesha street Amikonle in Alagbado, a Lagos suburb, were on Wednesday charged before a Yaba chief magistrate court in Lagos, and are facing a three count charge of conspiracy, child defilement and rape over the alleged rape of their 16 year old maid.

According to the prosecutor, ASP Godwin Anyanwu, he told the court that the husband conspired with his wife to rape the teenage housekeeper. Uzioma had overpowered the girl and threatened to stab her with a knife to force her to co operate with her husband. He said the offenses contravened sections 137, 258 and 409 of the criminal law of Lagos state, 2011.

The couple however denied the charges, and the magistrate, Mrs Yewande Aje-Afunwa in her ruling granted the accused bail in the sum of 100,000 each with two sureties. image
